Summary

Summary

Our environments, the places we inhabit, influence our behavior and shape our actions, thoughts, and emotions. Cultural trends along these lines find the design professions emerging with a new awareness about design, building, and living that reconnects the mind and body, fostering a sense of place and time, and true well-being. This beautiful volume showcases the work of designers and architects who are at the forefront of this trend. This book visually explores their work and how the buildings and environments they create enhance the quality of life, and sustain and support well-being for all inhabitants. From the spiritual connection to the natural world in an urban healing garden to the issues of human scale, natural light, and productivity in a large Midwestern factory, Human Spaces strives to instruct and inspire a design sensibility that translates into all aspects of daily life.
