Buildings that Soothe the Mind
Why is art such a conspicuous feature of all societies? Why are certain sights and sounds more pleasing than others? Although most people believe that artistic tastes are entirely dependent on cultural influences, there is a small group of neuroscientists who are searching for more innate reasons.
Neuroaesthetics is attemping to understand how art and architecture arouse aesthetic experience by starting from the basis of emotional and sensory experience. The movement is young, but in time may provide some interesting suggestion on how to design more soothing hospitals and intellectually arousing schools. It's all about the Look and Feel.
