Welcome to the June issue of CODAmagazine, where we share the best design + art projects from all over the world.  The magazine is published eleven times a year by CODAworx.com – we’re an online community for artists and design professionals to showcase their work, collaborate with one another, and earn recognition for their projects.


Art that Heals is the organizing principle of this month’s issue. Artists and designers create spaces of reflection, meditation, and transformation, using the power of the creative process as a healing force in our environments.

536084acaa146-butterfly10-skyline-2013CODAmagazine documents this trend of art in healing spaces; we have selected 25 amazing projects where collaborative teams transform healthcare, liturgical, and public areas, creating warm and welcoming habitats that heal those within them. Hospital interiors, medical exam rooms, chapels, and gardens are all featured, exhibiting creativity’s healthy influence through myriad methods and mediums.

Whether directly combatting injury by integrating art onto a CT Scanner or healing a community at large through an interactive installation or symbolic painting, this issue’s projects epitomize art’s healing effect on people and place.

Furthermore, collaborative at their core, these projects developed not only from the minds of designers, artists, and architects, but also healthcare professionals, public art agencies, and art consultants.

We hope you will subscribe to CODAmagazine on Flipboard to receive the best design + art projects from all over the world, delivered to you, free of charge, each month. We look forward to sharing more of these incredible collaborations with you.
