During Agatha’s session at the Art Gallery of South Australia, she discussed a new field of people-centred, emotionally intelligent, evidence-based design, and the art of combining scientific research and data with creative flair and imagination.
'The human emotional response system is a hunter... Always seeking out beauty in the form of balance & proportion!
Our innate understanding of form led the Greek sculpture Phidias to arrive at the Golden Ratio, a mathematical principle that he used to design the Parthenon in Athens.
When it comes to designing a built environment, a similar system exists for arriving at the perfect design'. - Agatha Ozhylovski
'It is because of inspiring and knowledgeable speakers such as yourself that this event continues to be such a success.
