This book explores research about the visual factors that determine how a building will be received, sometimes esteemed by one group and despised by another.  It effectively translates the rich collection of research done in universities, into language and concepts that can be used by practitioners and enhance the enjoyment of those who appreciate buildings and urban spaces.  

Dr. Ellingham is a member of the Niagara Society of Architects and a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada.
