Architectural Psychology

Architectural Psychology

Space, Psyche, Enigma & Symbols

Psychology is directly related to culture, art, and architecture. Appropriate use of various artistic components such as colour, space and size has the capacity of enlightening the atmosphere.

Architectural Psychology can be described as a branch of environmental or ecological psychology. It is the interaction between human and their environment. This includes spatial perception, orientation behaviour, living requirement and satisfaction. The architecture provides a sense of space and support to all type of human activities if used appropriately and it provides firmness, service, and delight. 

Much more than being a part of Environmental psychology to identify space, Architectural Psychology explains the Human Psyche, the Enigma that surrounds it and the Symbols it reflects- argues the author and in the book he gives a new dimension to architectural psychology.
