Podcast – 08: Architecture Psychology w/ Dr Eleanor Ratcliffe

In this episode, I spoke to Dr. Eleanor Ratcliffe, an acclaimed Researcher of Environmental Psychology at the University of Surrey

Have you ever wondered whether the spaces and places around you have an effect on your behaviour? Or did you ever think deeply into whether incorporating nature within architecture actually improves your experience?

This episode is mind-blowing. Because I actually got to ask a scientist and professor of psychology whether you can measure happiness! And you won’t believe her answer.

I have always been fascinated with the field of psychology and how architects and designers can learn more from its findings.

This episode is filled with super fun facts and examples of crazy experiments. We even spoke about how one experiment proved that architecture can affect the way you taste ice cream! That’s right, I said ice cream.

You’re listening to episode 8 of the Two Worlds Design podcast and I’m your host, Hamza Shaikh.
