Architecture of Happiness

"...we seek two things of our buildings. We want them to shelter us. And we want them to speak to us - to speak to us of whatever we find important and need to be reminded of."
- Alain de Botton

What do you want your home to speak to you?
What is it you need reminding of?
This book has opened my eyes to the realization that architecture (aware or not) can really have an effect on us. Curious about this? Read it. It's very insightful.
