The Application of Color in Healthcare Setting

The seminal 2004 study by Ruth Brent Tofle and colleagues demonstrated that there were “no direct linkages between particular colors and health outcomes.” The authors contended that the idea of specifying colors to evoke a particular mood or mental state could not be substantiated by the research literature. But what have we learned in the past nine years? During this webinar, we will spotlight recent research about color and lighting with perspectives from the neuroscience of vision, the psychology of perception, and the socio-cultural and functional effects that impact design and user outcomes. Findings from human biology as well as institutional function show that design interpretation can inform user needs in healthcare environments, special needs settings, and all architectural spaces that humans inhabit. By the end you will be familiar with the essential case studies of color.
