Drawing on new discoveries in cognitive psychology and neuroscience, in her new book Welcome to Your World, architecture critic and historian Sarah Williams Goldhagen probes how environments profoundly shape our feelings, memories and well-being. In this Skyscraper Seminar, Goldhagen will focus on issues of high-rise living and urban density. Drawing on the examples from her book, she’ll suggest how to bring new research and insights to construct a world better suited to human experience. All book talks are free and open to the public. Reservations are required.
