The Architecture of Happiness.

The Architecture of Happiness.


de Botton, Alain.

Cl. New York, 2006

Book ID: 70520

Examines the ways architecture speaks to us, evoking associations that, if we are alive to them, can put us in touch with our true selves and influence how we conduct our lives. Because of this, he contends, it's the architect's task to design buildings that contribute to happiness by embodying ennobling values.
