Abstract The contemporary city is experienced through a framework of multiple spaces that individuals interact with on a daily and routine basis. These are not merely encounters with the built form, but are environments that are metabolized and personalized by the individual into an "ethos" or "ambiance" of perception: a colourful composition of time, space and the character of place. In many instances these ambiances of perception are not altogether pleasant, leading to negative or unhealthy experiences. This paper aims to explore the modern ambiances that we interact with on a daily basis to promote the cultivation of healthier experiential cities. Particular attention will be given to how we personalize our harsh and unhealthy environments and by what methods we use to cope with them.
