Social Impact: Architecture Building Space for Empathy

A recent study revealed that there is a serious decline in a top emotional intelligence; empathy. I am sure this comes as no surprise as our country and world all-together, experience intense turmoil. Yet empathy is essential in our ability as humans to connect, to feel other’s emotions, and to understand another’s needs through deep listening and compassion. Frankly stated, our morality as people depends on our ability to care, to empathize, to relate. To sit and listen. Couple this with the understanding of how architecture affects our world; architecture is not only an expression of society’s culture but a contributor as well. It can aid in shaping our existence. Creating more kindness and caring throughout communities stepping away from technology, and the digital world and entering into the realm of physical structures. Ones in which empower, promote silence & joy.

from ArchDaily‘s, Social Impact: Architecture Building Space for Empathy.

From playgrounds for refugees, educational spaces which help enlighten us on social consciences, to memorials built on the foundation of peace and justice … the sustainability of our future is deeply interwoven into the core of our environments and how they are shaped, much more than we may even realize. Catch Eric Baldwin’s wonderful editorial on “Building Space for Empathy”.
Peace to you, dear Collective,
