1. Is it possible a similar interpretation could be applied to the direct correlation between the concept of lighting and open space to hospitals and healing and maybe the correlation between lighting and open space in a person’s home and suicide?
2. You mention the necessity of open space and light, but what about the setting in these spaces is important. I would assume that the space simply being open and well lit does not provide better conditions for healing. What about landscape? greenery? furniture? materials? social capacity?
3. Do you feel this should place a certain moral responsibility on architects and designers in regard to their ability to create spaces that heal?
4. What generated your interest in this?
5. what are the standards in this country for healthcare design and the amount of open and green space required?
