Supported by the School of Architecture and Built Environment and the Cognitive Neuroscience Unit, School of Psychology at Deakin University, this research project is an Australian frontier in the investigation of how the design of the built-environment affects human emotion. It aims to bring light to the ‘invisible’ – understanding the role architecture plays on our psychological well-being. The project ran from 2018 – 2022.

Dr Isabella Bower will be continuing with this research from 2023 – 2028 through a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of South Australia.
