Holy cow. How true.
Sarah Williams Goldhagen presents scientific evidence for why some buildings delight us and others—too many of them—disappoint.
Can anyone design a more depressing looking building? Maybe Arthur Charles Erickson? (The University of Lethbridge resembles a prison inside its halls.) I thought for a moment – “What else has that cold, lonely, depressing look?” What popped into my mind was Robson Square in Vancouver. Oh – Mr. Erickson again.
Now, don’t get me wrong – I’m not really into hobbit houses, either. But surely some warmth can enter architecture, can it not? We’re creating environments to be in.
