How do Design and Architecture Impact your Health? with Donald Ruggles, architect, and CEO of Ruggles Mabe Studio

Our surroundings can positively impact our lives, did you know that? 

In this episode, Donald Ruggles, architect, and CEO of Ruggles Mabe Studio talks about how architecture and design, with timeless forms and patterns, affect our health and well-being. Humans can respond to their environment from a survival or pleasure standpoint, and so Don discusses how and which forms and patterns can induce one or the other. Based on neuroscience studies, incorporating this knowledge when building and designing spaces destined for healthcare can help patients and staff relieve stress. He explains how human brains perceive specific patterns that are familiar and non-threatening and provides some examples that have been used for hundreds of years in architecture and designed instinctually.

Tune in to this episode to learn about how beauty, neuroscience, and architecture can come together to relieve stress and improve your health!
