Through a transdisciplinary perspective, the book aims to read the complex urban dimension, in front of increasing density, soil consumption, abandoned places, and the recent pandemic which proved megacities particularly inadequate to provide healthy psychophysical conditions. Assuming bodily and emotional comfort as a reference horizon, it tends to inspire the design research beyond a paradoxical binary logic that separates public and private, outside and inside, far and near, mind and places. The first part deals with built spaces and addresses sustainable strategies not only to overcome an ecologic and systemic crisis but also to improve places liveability in our contemporary city. The second part deals with our perception of aesthetic spaces, welcoming the stimuli coming from neuro-aesthetics studies on affordances and atmosphere and encouraging the intersection between interior architecture and design culture and arts. The third part deals with relational spaces and how they influence human behaviour, starting from psychological, anthropological and philosophical perspectives. Fostering an innovative standpoint, the book benefits scholars, academics and practitioners focused on interior architecture and design, as well as other researchers involved in the relationship between people and places. The new challenge posed by the recent pandemic requires more than ever to rely on consciousness, culture and creativity to increase the intelligence of our surroundings, allowing our sense of belonging and improving our personal and mutual wellbeing.

Abstract

Through a transdisciplinary perspective, the book aims to read the complex urban dimension, in front of increasing density, soil consumption, abandoned places, and the recent pandemic which proved megacities particularly inadequate to provide healthy psychophysical conditions. Assuming bodily and emotional comfort as a reference horizon, it tends to inspire the design research beyond a paradoxical binary logic that separates public and private, outside and inside, far and near, mind and places. The first part deals with built spaces and addresses sustainable strategies not only to overcome an ecologic and systemic crisis but also to improve places liveability in our contemporary city. The second part deals with our perception of aesthetic spaces, welcoming the stimuli coming from neuro-aesthetics studies on affordances and atmosphere and encouraging the intersection between interior architecture and design culture and arts. The third part deals with relational spaces and how they influence human behaviour, starting from psychological, anthropological and philosophical perspectives. Fostering an innovative standpoint, the book benefits scholars, academics and practitioners focused on interior architecture and design, as well as other researchers involved in the relationship between people and places. The new challenge posed by the recent pandemic requires more than ever to rely on consciousness, culture and creativity to increase the intelligence of our surroundings, allowing our sense of belonging and improving our personal and mutual wellbeing.
