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.

While arguing for an architecture in which the other senses are accorded equivalent status to that of seeing the writers also appeal for designs which convey more to the eyes in the form of information, reassurance and richness of experience. Suggesting that spaces which communicate only assertion and spectacle are failing in their role as habitable and engaging locations the book illustrates clearly ways in which we can greatly enhance the visual character of our built environment.
