About The Power of Places

The Power of Places is about the interaction between environment and psychology. Our surroundings, from the largest interacting systems, including the climate and population density of where we live, to the smallest spaces, like the rooms in which we live and work, have a huge influence on our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. Increasingly we are reclaiming our awareness of the multi-directional interplay between our environment and our psyche.
