“How do we design our cities when our most intimate experiences are incessantly tracked and our feelings become the base of new modes of production that prioritize the immaterial over the material?” Our Happy Life uncovers the architectural implications of this trend by dissecting and questioning the political, economic, and emotional conditions that generate space today. The book reveals architecture, city, and landscape as contested surfaces, caught between the intangible guidelines of happiness indexes, the new marketplace of emotions, and the relentless ideology of positivity.
