Pioneering research on architectural atmosphere
The spatial experiences generated by the architecture around us influence our emotions and behaviours. Advancements in cognitive neuroscience, technology and environmental psychology have made it possible to investigate and experiment with the emotional impact from specific sensory characteristics. This will improve our understanding of how to create architectural atmospheres by manipulating different ambient conditions. The EU-funded RESONANCES project will study architectural atmospheres as emotional and cognitive states of resonance between individuals and their built surroundings. It will establish scientific criteria and a formal basis to test new experimental paradigms concerning atmospheric perception. This will be achieved by combining the measurement of neural activation, physiological records and psychological self-reports describing emotional reactions in an interdisciplinary evidence-based approach.
