Smell and the Architectural Experience

Sep 18, 2014

There are positive and negative effects of smell that alter one’s emotional response to a space or can be used to change the visual ‘opinion’ of a space. This research focuses on how certain natural and unnatural scents can manipulate the experience of architectural environment as well as improve spatial navigation through spaces for both the general population as well as patients with certain neurological disorders.
