An eye-opening look at the ways in which carefully planned and executed design and architecture can expand cognitive faculties and improve daily life.” (Kirkus Reviews)“Goldhagen’s fresh perspective is deep exciting and optimistic.” (Booklist)“Goldhagen’s book lays the groundwork for the cognitive neuroscience of architecture.” (Terrence Sejnowski Francis Crick Professor at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies)“[A} feast for the mind…[with] a vital message: We can and must capitalize on this new knowledge to build more human-centered urban environments. It’s a call to action we ignore at our peril.” (Colin Ellard author of Places of The Heart and You Are Here)“Goldhagen’s illuminating book on the design of our world begins just where it should with us and how we live not with a dazzling shell.

CHANIN SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE AT COOPER UNION“Rarely does a book come along where its very premise is to stop you in your tracks compel you to look around take account of where you are standing… [Welcome to Your World] is one of those ‘stop and smell the roses’ experiences.” (Huffington Post)


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 an illuminating journey around the globe and into the brain Welcome to Your World reveals that the built environment and its design matter far more than anybody even architects ever thought they did. Using cutting-edge research in cognitive neuroscience and environmental psychology Sarah Williams Goldhagen articulates the ways in which a room a building or a city square affects us and details our reactions to form pattern light color sound texture and more.

Expanding on these concepts she walks us through some of the world’s best and worst buildings landscapes and cityscapes from the Parthenon in Athens to One World Trade Center in Manhattan from Amiens Cathedral in France to Berlin’s Holocaust Memorial from the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris to the 798 Art District in Beijing. Supported by overwhelming evidence and clear-eyed analysis she concludes that societies must reconsider what and how they build. Put simply: it requires the same resources to construct a building that impairs our capabilities as it does to erect a structure that enhances them. Ultimately the stakes—individual need and collective welfare—could not be higher.

Erudite wise and beautifully illustrated with more than 150 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.
