"Hence these two books from the same publisher and by the same author, Harry Francis Mallgrave, sole writer of the former and co–author with David Goodman of the second book, make a valuable contribution to this growing field of knowledge." (Architectural Review, 1 July 2011)
"Since I studied architecture ... I always heard the diatribe about if architecture is an art or a science, I personally believe is both. If you’re interested in both architecture and science be sure to grab a copy of this interesting book." (Eclectic Me Blog, April 2010)
"A gripping interpretation of how the latest advances in neuroscience enlarge our understanding of architecture from Alberti’s belief that a building is a ‘form of body’ to the computer whose dominance in architecture Mallgrave challenges." David Watkin, University of CambridgeSee all Product description

It is an interesting book, although more related to human behavior than the interaction between the brain, the Architect, and Architecture.

Fascinating history of an obscure study of the realm of perception of architecture that it's practitioners have ignored for hundreds of years. Oh what they could have contributed to our lives.

Only for architects?

Interesting book, well written and well organized. However, their target audience is almost exclusively architects. The application of neuroscience to understanding the architecture is insufficient. The major theme of the book is the relationship between the brain and the perception of space in general. The contents of neuroscience and architecture often seems distant, treated separately. Still, worth reading. But it is necessary to complement this work with more knowledge on the impact of space on the brain, including the issue of neuroplasticity.

I read this book as part of an architecture class and found it extremely dence as it was written as a philosophical and psychological perspective, and by a person who is not an architect. The book covers many subjects, including aesthetics and how and why we find certain architecture to be pleasing, perception or architecture as a multi sensory experience, And more. The first part of the book is a series of famous essays and the authors interpretation and elaboration on their insights. In the end a very dence but interesting book, worth the read for any architect worth his/her Salt.
