A significant number of buildings that once existing in New England have been torn down and replaced by building with various approaches to modern design.  Ann will show the negative impact of some forms of new development.  Ann has established a system to understand why humans prefer traditional buildings by analyzing the brain response and understanding the importance of the human face on architecture.

Learning Objectives

1.       Comprehend the reasons for traditional building design and its market impacts.

2.       Develop greater understanding for the importance of keeping local tradition and mix of building.


3.       Learn the basic framework for brain-loving architecture.
