Um, I think something's the matter with your link...
try again ! it should work now ! thanks
I have certainly experienced the effects of architecture on my own creative process. There is nothing worse than to be forced to have class in a broken-down, portable room. An aesthetically pleasing environment is so important to the learning/thinking process.
I wonder if there is a correlation between the design of spaces, the tone of the room color, etc. and nature. For example, do we feel happier and more creative and stimulated if environments that replicate a more natural situation than one that simulates an artificial, enclosed barrier?
I'm afraid the link does not work for me, either.
here is the link to the article http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=building-around-the-mind
Yes, I've heard that environments have begun to be considered in the treatment of illnesses. I wonder if this is similar to the effect that weather is known to have in the brain? I recall reading something about people being more depressed in dark, rainy places (like the suicide rate is higher in Scandinavia and Portland, OR).
