One of the nation’s chief architecture critics reveals how the environments we build profoundly shape our feelings, memories, and well-being, and argues that we must harness this knowledge to construct a world better suited to human experience. Taking us on a fascinating journey through some of the world’s best and worst landscapes, buildings, and cityscapes, Sarah Williams Goldhagen draws from recent research in cognitive neuroscience and psychology to demonstrate how people’s experiences of the places they build are central to their well-being, their physical health, their communal and social lives, and even their very sense of themselves. From this foundation, Goldhagen presents a powerful case that societies must use this knowledge to rethink what and how they build: the world needs better-designed, healthier environments that address the complex range of human individual and social needs. By 2050 America’s population is projected to increase by nearly seventy million people. This will necessitate a vast amount of new construction—almost all in urban areas—that will dramatically transform our existing landscapes, infrastructure, and urban areas. Going forward, we must do everything we can to prevent the construction of exhausting, overstimulating environments and enervating, understimulating ones. Buildings, landscapes, and cities must both contain and spark associations of natural light, greenery, and other ways of being in landscapes that humans have evolved to need and expect. Fancy exteriors and dramatic forms are never enough, and may not even be necessary; authentic textures and surfaces, and careful, well-executed construction details are just as important. Erudite, wise, lucidly written, and beautifully illustrated with more than one hundred color photographs, Welcome to Your World is a vital, eye-opening guide to the spaces we inhabit, physically and mentally, and a clarion call to design for human experience.

I like to give the public little glimpses of what I see and deal with in my everyday life. Although I'm a very private person, I understand that other people may benefit reading about how others overcame trials and tribulations. My life has taken a lot of interesting twists and turns in the past seven to eight years, and I'm glad that I'm able to share those experiences with my peers and the general public, whether they were great experiences or ones I would like to forget. I now realize the power that writing books can hold. You can immortalize moments in your life in words forever, and they'll be here long after you're gone for your children and grandchildren to enjoy. I hope you enjoy what I write and I hope you're inspired to do better in your life.

This book was devised with a single intention: for people to understand how the brain works. Society, along with evolution, teaches us to rely mainly on the longterm memory area of the brain, yet this can be the underlying cause of many mental and physical problems. Welcome To My World has been written in a deliberately simplistic way so that everyone can understand it. Hopefully it might encourage you to question how you use your own brain and challenge you to think in a very different way. Whilst there are many books written by so-called experts about the physiology and function of the brain, their authors rarely have personal insight into how seemingly ‘normal’ brain activity can impact negatively on overall wellbeing, or how the brain can be re-trained with amazing consequential benefi ts to health.
