Health Improvement Program, Stanford Architecture, Help Center

Space, place and architecture make a difference. Working from general principles, and using Stanford’s campus as a model, we will explore how spaces make us feel good or uncomfortable. We will also explore how to read the cues in architecture and landscape to enhance personal well-being. PLEASE NOTE: Architectural features of the Bender Room are highlighted in the themes of this talk, and thus it is being held there.

Panelists: John Barton, M.Arch., is Director of Stanford’s Architectural Design Program and an architect in private practice. He is a former member of the Palo Alto City Council and also served two terms on the Palo Alto Unified School District Board of Education. John has taught at Stanford, UC Berkeley, and San Jose State Universities. His practice has spanned over thirty years and has received numerous design awards including a recent AIACC Honor Award in Urban Design for collaborative work on high-speed rail options in Palo Alto. He was elevated to the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects in 2013.

David Lenox, M.Arch., has been the Stanford University Architect since 2005 and has focused on establishing a framework for continued physical growth of the campus to support the mission and vision of the University. He has led the development of a campus master plan that outlines strategies to restore the original Olmsted campus plan, and has provided direction for design on all new campus buildings including milestone projects such as the Bing Concert Hall, Windhover, School of Medicine LKSC, SEQ, Knight Management Center, and the Neukom Building. He is currently the Vice President on the Board of the Association of University Architects and has served on design juries for AIA San Francisco, California Preservation Foundation, AIA National Interior Design Awards, and the Society for College and University Planning.
