MIND IN ARCHITECTURE: NEUROSCIENCE, EMBODIMENT AND THE FUTURE OF DESIGN. Ed. by Sarah Robinson and Juhani Pallasmaa. MIT Press, Cambridge, 2015. 260 pp. with 73 ills. (53 col.). 24 x 19 cm. LC 2014-34234 ISBN 9780262028875 In English.
This book has its origins at the Minding Design symposium that took place at Taliesin West in November 2012, an event sponsored by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and Taliesin, the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. Publisher's description: Although we spend more 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 interactions 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 future. Architecture is late in discovering the richness of neuroscientific research.
