Lily Bernheimer: The Shaping of Us

July 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Lily Bernheimer discusses her new book, The Shaping of Us: How Everyday Spaces Structure Our Lives, Behavior, and Well-Being.

About The Shaping of Us

Spaces we live in define our identity and sense of community. Using international examples of environmental architecture and design, The Shaping of Us reveals the often imperceptible ways that our surroundings influence our behavior and quality of life. Lily Bernheimer explores productivity in work environments, biophilia, and pop culture phenomena such as “the IKEA effect,” NIMBYism, and “ruin porn.”

From woonerfs and roundabouts to the ubiquity of traffic lights, Le Corbusier’s unrealized plan for Paris, and innovations in affordable housing, Bernheimer demonstrates that the environments we inhabit define us, from the earliest moments of our evolution to today. In understanding this, we can better plan and build environments that promote improved productivity, sustainable economies, and increased happiness and well-being.
