What can the new interdisciplinary field of neuroscience for architecture tell us about the connection between physical space and personal experience and well-being? Join us as we explore this topic and examine how this research can be applied to library building design and overall use of space. As the “library as place” debate continues, libraries are feeling mounting pressure to justify use of institutional resources to support brick-and-mortar facilities. Does this research speak to the value of physical library spaces?
