February 3, 2021.  Places with optimism radiate youthfulness, abundance and life.

They have a contrast of mass and gravity – of light, lightness and flight; a sense of weightlessness that defies gravity and encourages an upward gaze.

Places that shape our embodied cognition invigorate us, make us feel more alive, open up possibilities in our mind’s eye. They expand our horizons and allow us to contemplate new possibilities.

Places with optimism express purpose, promote wellbeing, and celebrate daily life; they enhance our ability to create social change.

Does your built environment radiate optimism?
