"Unlocking the Beauty of Architecture with Auraplanning"
Atmospheres are an important component of architecture. They are the intangible elements that have a great influence on the emotions and feelings of people who experience them. Atmospheres are created through the careful selection of materials, use of light, sound, and smell. The atmosphere of an architectural space is determined by its physical characteristics, such as its size and shape, the materials used, and the way it is decorated. Creating the right architectural space that will support a the range of atmospheres wanted by its participants is essential in ensuring its success. Atmospheres are often the deciding factor in whether a space is comfortable and inviting or not.
Burland Auraplanning is an approach to architecture that starts with finding the atmospheres that its participants want and uses the consensus to aid the chosen design process.
