Abstract

Can beauty in architecture nourish the human emotional brain? Semir Zeki, Professor of Neuroaesthetics at University College London argues that it does. He goes further in suggesting it should be a quality in all buildings and that humanity has the ability to recognise this beauty across all cultural divides. The appreciation of beauty, no matter where found, is hardwired into our brains.
