Golriz Farzamfar

Research Assistant, Design and Computation Arts, Concordia University

Golriz Farzamfar holds a bachelor’s degree in architecture and a master’s degree in urban design. She is currently pursuing her graduate program in design at Concordia University. Golriz has professional experience of around 12 years in the realm of designing and managing different projects with a focus on the field of medical landmarks. Attending different conferences and courses in healthcare architecture, Golriz gained knowledge in terms of practice and research for this subject. Her academic and professional background along with a strong passion for the interactions between design and health drew her to focus on the topic of “healing architecture” in her graduate research. Her master’s research touches on the topic of Human senses and homeyness in the patient room atmosphere. It aims to better understand the correlation between human senses and home-like environments in the patient rooms. The final goal of her project is to create comfortable environments for patients in hospitals through design strategies considering all human senses. Also, the results of the study will reveal how giving individuals more independence in the cognition and control of their environment may be achieved through the architecture of the senses. Moreover, this research’s outcomes would raise awareness for the healthcare designers, caregivers, and patients in terms of the importance of considering all human senses to create healing atmospheres in the hospital rooms.
