2). SENSORY PERCEPTION AND HOME DESIGN: CEU APPROVED: NKBA 1 CEU; ASID 1 CEU
Data entering the mind from smell, taste, touch and hearing often arrives subconsciously and can matter just as much as what our vision tells us. Blind since birth, sensory expert Dr. Hoby Wedler PHD, provides sensory insight into the vulnerability of traditional, sight-driven architectural and interior design.
3). THE DESIGNER CHARRETTE
We provide well-known Bay Area designers with a property plus a supporting photo portfolio, property and home description, client’s desires/needs and a fixed budget. Each designer has 3.5 hours to design a remodel of the home based on the terms outlined above, and 20 minutes to reveal his/her redesign (on-screen and on-stage) and respond to audience questions and feedback.
