In SWR’s two-hour morning program, journalist and presenter Nicole Köster talks with Tanja C Vollmer about the pioneering work of KOPVOL architecture & psychology. Together they look at the genesis of the idea of combining architecture and psychology in building, barriers, milestones and upcoming challenges. At the center, of course, is always the question of the influence of architecture on people’s health and experience of illness. The architectural psychologist recently published answers in her book “Architecture as a Second Body” (Gebr. Mann Verlag, 2022).
