Architecture and Emotion: The Psychological Impact of Built Spaces
In this talk, Colin Ellard will describe the many ways in which the design of buildings influences what you think, how you feel, and who you are. Drawing on research from his Urban Realities Laboratory at the University of Waterloo, his personal experiences, and the fascinating surroundings at St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Ellard will explain how the new science of place can help us to understand the vital connections between psyche and surroundings.
