Emotional Architecture

Christopher K. Travis uses “emotional architecture” to create a house that is a “suite of emotional experiences”. This fascinating story in the NY Times Home Section on July 17, 2008, details the method of this architectural designer to develop “an exhaustive psychological and aesthetic compatability exercise for would-be home builders”.

The article mentions the auction of a dream house of a CT couple who spent $21million for 26,000 square feet only to discover that the house “did not fit them at all”.
