concepts, environments and objects to resonate emotionally with people
I believe that if cities were designed softer, our social attitude would change.
We are affected -constantly- by how our environment is designed. Sometimes we are aware of it. But most often we are not: we feel like staying at a bar, or repelled by a restaurant atmosphere. We can usually say if we like or not the mood of the place, but usually don't know why.
Our emotional response when we enter a new place can be instant when it is wowing or striking. But even when subtle, its effect - in our reaction, health and wellbeing- can be overwhelmingly strong.
Designing from how space and materials "make us feel" can create engaging and healthy experiences for people.
