Psychological & Physiological Factors in Office Design

Experience the breadth of human tactile, visual and auditory senses and their importance in workplace design.
Learn why certain personality types and sensory profiles thrive in open-plan offices and others find them over-stimulating.
Discover your own sensory profile and how this impacts workplace preferences and productivity.
Apply what you have learned about these complex psychological and physiological factors to design through hands-on practical sessions with project scenarios.

Led by a team of experts in environmental psychology and human physiology, this workshop is sure to be an informative, unique experience not to be forgotten.
