Reviews - What do customers think about People and Places: Connections between the Inner and Outer Landscape?
very nice book. Jan 5, 2007
I found this way of approaching to the human vision of place of these couple of "arquitecture and psicological human age", very interesting and perhaps the beginning of the answer to the question "I like very much these place, I feel comfortable, but I don't know why???".

The collaborative and profusely illustrated work of John R. Myer (Professor Emeritus, Department of Architecture, MIT) and Margaret H. Myer (Assistant Clincial Professor of Psychiatry, Emerita, Tufts University School of Medicine), People & Places: Connections Between The Inner And Outer Landscape provides the reader with an informed and informative survey of the influences between the places they work and live have upon the lives of people. People & Places describes the design process of three different types of places, examines the present state of "place making", precendents from the past, and the rapid cultural changes of the postindustrial electronic age. A work of groundbreaking and seminal scholarship, People & Places is a core addition to academic library collections and especially recommended to the attention of students and professional urban planners, architects, landscape artists, and builders.
