Designer’s approach for scene selection in tests of preference and restoration along a continuum of natural to manmade environments

Designer’s approach for scene selection in tests of preference and restoration along a continuum of natural to manmade environments, Frontiers in Psychology

“It is well-established that the experience of nature produces an array of positive benefits to mental well-being. Much less is known about the specific attributes of green space which produce these effects. In the absence of translational research that links theory with application, it is challenging to design urban green space for its greatest restorative potential. This translational research provides a method for identifying which specific physical attributes of an environmental setting are most likely to influence preference and restoration responses.” — (Abstract)
