GROSSMAN, Elio; ARAUJO-JORGE, Tania Cremonini de  and  ARAUJO, Inesita Soares de. Reflections about health and educational objects and physical environments. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2008, vol.13, suppl.2, pp.2269-2277. ISSN 1678-4561.

This article looks to the objects and physical environments destined to teaching and research in health from a different perspective. It addresses the communication between the designers and the people that use their projects and investigates in which ways the designer can contribute to a positive transformation of the state of mind of the users of teaching and health environments, taking into account the reaction of people to the products and environments, especially manifestations of pleasure and well-being. The article presents a pilot edition of an instrument for sensitization and data collection in form of a workshop called "Environment, Creation and Pleasure".

Keywords : Health; Education; Design; Communication; Pleasure.
