Body, Memory And Architecture

Bloomer and Moore

1977

One of the definitive books on the relationship between the built environment and our physical and psychological place within it. Essential reading for anyone interested in improving the user experience of architectural locations.

Perhaps the central thrust of this essential book is the idea of the total sensory experience. That  our built environment should speak to us through all of our senses, should please and enrich all of our senses and should actively engage and  even challenge all of our senses. Our place and sense of self, physically, emotionally and spiritually is largely defined by the spaces we build and through which we form our world. Orientation to our environment, to each other and within our own mental lives is inextricably linked to the spaces we occupy as is the quality of our lives.
