The result of millions of years of human evolution, enabling us to navigate our way through our daily lives, spatial intelligence remains one of man's most underrated attributes. Written by one of the leaders in architectural thought, Spatial Intelligence explores the role of spatial intelligence in the creation of architecture.

Spatial Intelligence Summary

Spatial Intelligence: New Futures for Architecture by Leon van Schaik

The book is organised into three distinct sections that in turn highlight the significance of spatial intelligence for architecture: the first section provides an overview of spatial intelligence as a human capability; the second section argues how the acknowledgement of this capability in architectural education and the profession should enable the demystification of the practice of design, forming the basis of a more democratic interface between society and practice; the final section explores exciting new opportunities for practice in the linking of real and virtual environments in the information age.
