Ruth Slavid talks architecture

Brainy stuff

Posted in books by ruthslavid on February 17, 2010

I am intrigued to see that there is a new book published on architecture and the brain published by Wiley.

This sounds like one for me, since both are subjects that fascinate me. The problem is that, while brain scientists writing for their public like to show how clever they are by writing really simply, architects in the world of theory like to show how clever they are by writing impenetrably.

I’ve tried the ‘look inside’ facility on Amazon, and I’m not sure – the use of the word ‘germane’ on the first page is not encouraging. Anyway, it costs £70, more than I have ever spent on a book, so that may make up my mind for me.
