Video: Virtual Architecture Informs How We Respond To Spaces

Researchers at the University of California San Diego are investigating how our brains respond to various spatial environments. Dr. Eve Edelstein, a neuroscientist, is researching how architectural designs can be manipulated through data gleaned from measurements taken from users while they experience different spatial environments in ‘The Cave’ – a controlled laboratory.

The evidence is enlightening, as it clearly shows how our brains respond to light, space, and even ceiling height. What may be intuitive for architects, Dr. Edelstein is attempting to quantify in an empirical manner in order to understand how and why these elements affect our brains, body, and behavior.

It would be interesting if we could all upload our designs and experience them in the design development stages from this academic perspective.
