Spaces are perceived emotionally. They influence our well-being.
When entering a space, we instantly and involuntarily rate its atmosphere as pleasant or unpleasant. The atmosphere is composed of the innumerable aspects of a space, all of which affect us multisensorially and which are immediately and subliminally evaluated by the limbic system, thus influencing our bodily condition. Accordingly, we feel either well or unwell in spaces, whether we are fully aware of it or not. Architectonic spaces can either enhance our well-being and support health or provoke malaise.
