What Architecture Is Doing to Your Brain - Buildings Have Measurable Effects on Your Mental State | Navigate | Scoop.it

"Looking at buildings designed for contemplation—like museums, churches, and libraries—may have positive, measurable effects on your mental state."

 

Summary from BrainHQ - Brain Fitness News November 2014

You may not have considered how the Eiffel Tower or a modernist library might be affecting your brain, but researcher Julio Bermudez has found that different types of architecture can shape and affect your mental state. He has found that beautiful buildings can induce a meditative-like state and produce measurable brain change.

30 Untranslatable Words From Other Languages Illustrated By Anjana Iyer

When something is “lost in translation,” it could have been due to a simple mistake or due to the fact that one language was not quite able to capture the essence of a word's meaning in another language. This conflict is the idea behind New Zealand-based designer Anjana Iyer's “Found in Translation” series of images, which try to explain the meaning behind words in other languages that have no direct equivalent in English.
