Oculus Book Talk: Welcome to Your World: How the Built Environment Shapes Our Lives

AIA CES: 1.5 LU | 1.5 HSW

When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM THURSDAY, JUNE 15

Where: At The Center   

Rescheduled from 6/12/2017

Sarah Williams Goldhagen's new book, Welcome to Your World: How the Built Environment Shapes Our Lives, explores how the world around us influences our day to day existence without our realizing. Drawing on recent research in cognitive neuroscience and psychology, Goldhagen describes the effects that cities, landscapes, streetscapes, and buildings can have on our physical health and social lives. Welcome to Your World looks at how future population will necessitate increased building, and at how we can make decisions now to allow for healthy environments.
