It is a common enough assumption that good buildings make us feel good just as poor ones can make us feel insecure, depressed or even threatened. We may instantly decide that we `like' one building more than another, in the same way that without thinking we choose one work of art or music over another. But what is going on when we make these instant decisions? In this book, Frank Lyons unpicks the complex relationships that go to make up great works of architecture. He reveals a set of principles that clarifies the distinction between the subjective and objective in culture, through which he provides the reader with a more coherent understanding of architecture.
