Architecture And Design For Healing

“When we’re sick, or when we’re caring for others who are sick, we often feel vulnerable. So we quite naturally seek refuge. And as human beings, we tend to associate certain natural landscapes, like calming forests and colorful, tranquil gardens, with refuge.” Robin Guenther, FAIA, LEED AP, Principal of Perkins+Will and Senior Advisor to Health Care Without Harm
