Summary and Info
For too long, architects have been guided by experience or intuition in designing shelters for man's activities. This book stresses the need for architects to understand how humans perceive space, color, texture, in the design of buildings. In understanding how the brain processes information through the senses, building design can respond more effectively in achieving the goals set by their clients for the users. Eberhard urges architects to collaborate with neuroscientists to realize human potential and he introfduces neuroscientists to architecture and the mission of the architect. He accomplishes this with explanations which both professions can follow and with well-placed illustrations. I wish there were more of his drawings in the book.
