Valerie  Mace


Valerie's research is grounded in phenomenological-ecology and advocates multi-sensory practices for experiential spatial design to enhance and enrich interrelations between people and environment. In her work, she integrates interdisciplinary perspectives to investigate and promote the design of spaces with rewarding and sustaining environmental qualities.

Valerie regularly contributes to publications, conferences and seminars, peer-reviews and editorial activities, as well as knowledge exchange activities with universities and organisations. She is currently conducting her PhD research at Central Saint Martins, redefining personalisation as a path to emotional attachment in the public interior and developing a sensori-emotional design framework to cultivate intimacy between visitors and their environment.
