Wayfinding's engagement with hearts and minds
from By Michael J. Berens
Sir Winston Churchill once observed, "We shape our buildings, and afterwards our buildings shape us." After a German bombing, Churchill longed to have restored the British House of Commons, in which he had spent so many years of his life. However, it is not through habit and familiarity alone that our buildings shape us. Recent research indicates that when the design of buildings seeks to guide us through their interiors, our minds and emotions come into play.
