Last May 7th, one of our idea pikapika days was held at Roca Barcelona Gallery.

On this occasion the presentation of “Healtcare Spaces. Design, emotions and people” was given by Angie Rosales, director and founder of Pallapupas.

The conference is part of the Design for health theme in which Roca Gallery makes us participate as experts in the sector:

“From the architectural principles of Vitruvius to the most esoteric theories of feng shui, each civilisation has developed its own theories on the impact of architecture on health and well-being. It’s common sense: the spaces we inhabit have a significant effect on how we feel, perform, interact, and indeed, heal. It’s common sense: the spaces we inhabit have a significant effect on how we feel, perform, interact, and indeed heal. Today, a holistic approach embodied by human-centered design that embraces both low-tech methods and new technologies is creating hospitals that heal both body and mind, spaces that prevent loneliness, technology that harnesses data to tackle epidemics, and green spaces that contribute to healthier cities for all citizens. Today, a holistic approach represented by a human-centered design that encompasses both low-tech methods and new technologies is creating hospitals that heal the body and mind, spaces that prevent loneliness, technology that harnesses data to address epidemics, and green spaces that contribute to healthier cities for all citizens.

In most cases, health spaces are designed without taking into account the emotional needs of patients, who, in short, are people who often feel lost, anguished or stressed during their stay in the hospital.

In this day of Idea Pika Pika, we analyze and reflect on how, through design, can improve the emotional state of patients, and in turn, contribute to better healing.

However, the quality of the experience of the patients is not necessarily related to the degree of healing, often also focuses on how the space that has hosted it and the treatment received.

The design of sanitary spaces must necessarily involve an understanding of the needs of the people who use them. The person, seen holistically, must be the centre of decisions.
