Let's share our knowledge about scientific papers, studies, polls/surveys and media reports
regarding classical and new classical architecture and urbanism here,
so it doesn't get lost at the general thread anymore.
:)



There's a study by urban planning/architecture/society scientists of Chemnitz Tech University (incl. Dr. Nicole Küster)
for instance that finds classical styles have a much higher stability in value and approval by residents,
compared to modernist concrete structures etc.


Summary (German): https://www.tu-chemnitz.de/wirtschaft/bwl4/pub/Thiessen_Kuester_2014.pdf

Whole study (German): http://www.qucosa.de/fileadmin/data/qucosa/documents/12981/Dissertation_Küster.pdf

The work is currently translated into English.

Which essays, studies and public opinion polls etc. do you know of?

This is really interesting, proving with neuroscience how classical and traditional architecture expands our wellbeing:

"Ann Sussman is interested in how buildings influence our behavior. Her books, including Cognitive Architecture and Urban Experience + Design, written with Justin B. Hollander, reveal the unconscious tendencies at work when we navigate the world around us.

These ‘hidden’ predispositions reflect our long evolutionary trip per recent research in psychology and neuroscience, and can help explain why we favor certain urban conditions and building configurations and shun others. Understanding ourselves better, Sussman believes, can lead us to build more humanely and ultimately, more successfully for people."
