Spaces of Serenity features six projects by Architect and Professor Jeffery S. Poss, FAIA. Each project responds to the basic human desire to identify and seek out creative ways to resolve the conflicts of living in the everyday world. They demonstrate how, by carefully orchestrating built form, filtering sensory input, and paying careful attention to human scale, physical space can positively impact one’s emotional state.
