Title:The physical quality of our environment
Author(s):Saeidi-Rizi, Fatemeh
Subject(s):Landscape Architecture
Abstract:The world we experience is full of perceptual and physical qualities we encounter every day. The built environment is one of the physical qualities we are surrounded with. Our everyday interactions with the physical environment is an integral part of our lives and play an essential role in our mental and physical health. The population of the world is increasing at a very high rate. With this rapid growth of urbanization, every day more and more buildings are constructed around the world, and as a result, nature is vanishing little by little from our urban environment. Does this really matter? Does it have any impact on our lives? Research shows that urban nature matters. I have taken the photo on the right in one of the streets of Taipei and then simulated nature on the picture on the left side to test the lack of nature in the urban areas. The only difference in these two photos is the trees and vegetation. In my research, I examine how green nature in the urban area can impact on our attentional network and level of stress that we experience every day.
