Lectures and Seminars
The suggested lectures and seminars' main target is to present the participants with new
worlds of content and ideas, while offering simple and practical tools for their
1. Home design as means of self-empowerment.
2. "Couple therapy"- improving your relationships by redesigning the intimate
environment of your home.
3. The language of geometry, color, and light- in the mirror of history, sociology, and
psychology- and its influence on the world of architecture and design.
4. "Light on the Personal"- Color and Light and their significant influence on the
human psyche in general, and on each participant in particular. How would color
and lighting effect you on a personal level?
5. Using a process of guided imagery, the participants learn how to connect with their
inner world and imagination in order to 'translate' the latter into designing the
atmosphere they need.
