Norwalk Public Library, 1 Belden Avenue

Did you know that the color of your walls, the shape of your furniture, and the height of your ceilings can all greatly impact your ability to come up with creative ideas?

Architect Donald M. Rattner delves into these and other elements of our built surroundings that scientists and psychologists have found to positively influence creative task performance. The extensively illustrated talk will draw from his newly published book “My Creative Space: How to Design Your Home to Stimulate Ideas and Spark Innovation, 48 Science-based Techniques,” copies of which will be available for sale and signing following the presentation.

Whether you’re a writer, design professional, entrepreneur, artist, work in a creative industry, or pursue a personal passion for pleasure, this talk will help you begin turning living space into creative space. No previous design expertise required!
