Spirit of Place

Renee Kemp-Rotan
Master Planner, Urban Designer; CEO and Design Principal, studiorotan

‘Spirit of Place’ is a journey and exploration to remind us all, as we design places for health and healthcare, that health, spirit, and place are inseparable.  This two-part presentation will: (1) examine the world’s most sacred places for cultural ritual and spiritual healing, where spiritual energy consciously infused into architecture and landscape, becomes magical; and (2) provide an interactive discussion about kinesthetic principles that influence “how we feel and behave” in time, space and architecture.  ‘Spirit of Place’ will provide an inclusive forum to explore a rare approach to design that acknowledges the purposeful nature of well-designed spirit spaces that nurture and heal.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:                                                                                                   

1.  Examining the spiritual elements of the world’s most sacred places.
2.  Acknowledging role of architecture on kinesthetics and the healing experience.
3.  Becoming exposed to research on design, cultural competence, and social impact.
4.  Becoming aware of the crucial importance of spirit and place in health can healthcare.
