The Architect's Brain: Neuroscience, Creativity, and Architecture is the first book to consider the relationship between the neurosciences and architecture, offering a compelling and provocative study in the field of architectural theory.

Explores various moments of architectural thought over the last 500 years as a cognitive manifestation of philosophical, psychological, and physiological theory Looks at architectural thought through the lens of the remarkable insights of contemporary neuroscience, particularly as they have advanced within the last decade Demonstrates the neurological justification for some very timeless architectural ideas, from the multisensory nature of the architectural experience to the essential relationship of ambiguity and metaphor to creative thinking

Harry Francis Mallgrave is a professor of architecture at Illinois Institute of Technology, and has enjoyed a distinguished career as an award-winning scholar, translator, and architect. His most recent publications include Modern Architectural Theory: A Historical Survey, 1673-1968, and the two-volume Architectural Theory: An Anthology from Vitruvius to 2005 (Wiley-Blackwell 2008). His forthcoming Introduction to Architectual Theory will be published by Wiley-Blackwell in 2010.

Hence these two books from the same publisher and by the same author, Harry Francis Mallgrave, sole writer of the former and co-author with David Goodman of the second book, make a valuable contribution to this growing field of knowledge. (Architectural Review, 1 July 2011)
