Two Worlds Design is a philosophy. The outer world - environment and matter - has a direct effect on our inner world - perception and our senses. TWD is focused on understanding how humans experience 'space' & 'place' and learning about how our behaviour responds to it. This is a long-term research initiative and therefore TWD operates as an open-source platform for sharing progressions in its explorations. The main manifestations of the initiative aim to make major progressions in Architectural Psychology and Adaptable Architecture.
