Visiting the famous Louisiana in Denmark today, an outstanding example of combining greenery and art exhibition spaces for enhanced aesthetic experiences.
We are launching a questionnaire to art museums around the world, by which we wish to collect information about how often green spaces have been used intentionally to enhance art experiences and how systematically that has been done.

Background and motivation
Sanna & Matthew met for the first time in 2008. They then shared an interest in understanding how space and spatiality is experienced, even though from very different perspectives. Sanna is doing research in philosophical and environmental aesthetics, whereas Matthew has a solid background in psychology of art and neuroaesthetics. In this project they unite their forces for the first time in order to better understand how experiences can be affected by museum design.
