The Art of Understanding Your Building's Personality: Discover How Buildings Are People Too! (Hardcover)
Wayne reveals how the human body was used as the model for creating the buildings and high-rise structures we live and work in today. Yet, more telling he walks us through scientific evidence that shows how our building's and structures can communicate with people. He uses a number of analogies and real life experiences to reveal how buildings and facilities operate and communicate. He systematically interconnects your cognitive functions with facilities-related processes. These interrelated functions encompass reasoning, memory, attention, and related facility engineering terms which lead directly to the attainment of information and, in-turn, enhance your understanding as a current and future facilities professional, as well as that of a novice that would just simply like to know of Wayne's exploits or a basic curiosity of just how buildings work.
Daisy Gallagher, a global Who's Who within the built environment and Washington, DC insider, advances the Foreword of this book to introduce a number of Wayne's achievements and teachings, that includes Wayne being recognized by the 114th Congress of the United States. She shares how Wayne takes the wrapper off some of America's most prestigious companies and organizations to share a few of his insights and dealings with some of these recognizable structures, while ultimately convincing you that buildings are people too
