The Happy Spaces Project attempts to create a synthesized understanding about how the physical environment affects people’s happiness. Its content comes from submissions from people around the world who have identified a space that makes them happy, visually documented it, and textually explained why that space makes them happy. Through the project we hope that people can gain a deeper understanding and sensitivity of how space affects us. We hope this blog will serve as a resource to architects, interior designers, designers of any sort really, aesthetes, and anyone who has ever been curious about why people create spaces the way they do.
The project is a product of a collaboration between free-lance designer and CAPA Fellow Gong Szeto and Bennington College student Caseysimone Cooper during Bennington College’s seven week internship period called Field Work Term.
