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?
