Editorial Reviews

Review


An outstanding new book, Brain Landscape , argues that the time is ripe to develop paradigms that deeply integrate neuroscientific insights into architectural design practice and create classrooms that impact the cognitive processes of children, hospital rooms that impact the recovery rate of patients and work environments that improve white collar productivity as well as other spaces that favorably impact the brain.

The book is a treasure trove for the cognitive designer. The author, John Eberhard, provides grand vision....As well as a number of well-grounded hypotheses that are specific enough to guide design work..."--As reviewed on the blog Cognitive Design

For too long, architects have been guided by experience or intuition in designing shelters for man's activities. This book stresses the need for architects to understand how humans perceive space, color, texture, in the design of buildings. In understanding how the brain processes information through the senses, building design can respond more effectively in achieving the goals set by their clients for the users. Eberhard urges architects to collaborate with neuroscientists to realize human potential and he introfduces neuroscientists to architecture and the mission of the architect. He accomplishes this with explanations which both professions can follow and with well-placed illustrations. I wish there were more of his drawings in the book.

While this book was not written poorly, it wasn't written well either. It is an interesting topic, but there isn't enough information in the book to make it worth $45.
If you are interested in this topic and I think you can probably pick up 4 other books on similar topics for the same amount of money that will give you more useful and interesting information.

This book is quite valuable in their demonstration of possible contribution of neuroscience in architecture projects. The integration of neurosciences in the study of architecture is well placed, although it is noted that much progress is still needed in this thesis. It will not be found architectural solutions, but provides an intriguing connection between our brain and architectural spaces. I liked it!
