Review Mind in Architecture
Mind in Architecture Read & download é 2 Leading neuroscientists and architects explore how the built environment affects our behavior thoughts emotions and well beingAlthough we spend than ninety percent of our lives inside buildings we understand very little about how the built environment affects our behavior thoughts emotions and well being We are biological beings whose senses and neural systems have developed over millions of years; it stands to reason that research in the life sciences particularly neuroscience can offer compelling insights into the ways our buildings shape our intera. A bit of context I m working in Neuroscience as a PostDoc and I have an interest in Architecture as a field that offers a nice crossover between arts and science I appreciate the attempt of this book but it doesn t close the gap between the two On the Neuroscience side the books elaborates on the concept of embodied cognition and mirror neurons which are probably two of the most abused concepts in neuroscience The theoretical conseuence of this concepts are routinely taken too far The problem with the approach that the book proposes might well be that Architecture and Neuroscience live in very different scales It might prove fertile to connect Architecture with Psychology and human behaviour insteadCharacters ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ Sarah Robinson
Mind in Architecture Read & download é 2 Ctions with the world This expanded understanding can help architects design buildings that support both mind and body In Mind in Architecture leading thinkers from architecture and other disciplines including neuroscience cognitive science psychiatry and philosophy explore what architecture and neuroscience can learn from each other They offer historical context examine the implications for current architectural practice and education and imagine a neuroscientifically informed architecture of the futureArchitecture is late in discovering the richness. I find the idea of writing this book really intriguing and with a good sense for the future but the studies and the info presented are not necessarily correlated All it s saying throughout the whole book is that it would be good to study neuroscience in relation to architecture to enhance how we grasp and sense our built environment but not giving anything I read it from start to finish just seeking for the enlightenment but the enlightenment didn t came Disappointment out
