Farrow Cited as One of Nineteen Changemakers Reshaping the World

November 20, 2017. In the November issue of global Hospitality Design Magazine, Guest Editor and CEO of Six Senses Resorts, Neil Jacob has cited Tye Farrow as one of nineteen earth champions and wellness visionaries, who are changing what it means to do good.

Jacob’s writes: “Now a visionary in his own right, Farrow launched the Cause Health movement in 2012, which creates “places where we thrive, through a process of co-creation, in order to expand possibilities.” Farrow’s aim is to raise the standards of global design, ultimately achieving total health in built environments by asking: Does this place cause health? How does it make me feel?”

“These questions, he says, transcend traditional concerns and expand the meaning of design excellence beyond aesthetics to include the impact on human health. “We can no longer afford to tolerate places that fail to ensure we thrive,” he says. “Generations of constructing environments that deny our deeply rooted biological needs have yielded not only a surge of lifestyle-related diseases, but also a plague on the human spirit.” For Farrow, design today can’t be “isolated, placeless, careless, and rootless. Every element in every space serves to either enhance or erode our capacity to thrive.”
