A Designer's Guide to the Resources of the Psyche 


The inner studio unveils a place of learning inside each of us where we can learn lessons about ourselves that are inseparable from what we design and build.
Filled with anecdotes, examples, and exercises

The Inner Studio guides readers into deeper levels of our imagination and decision-making, focusing squarely on the experience of the designer during the creative act of design.
How do designers convert their subjective and often unconscious experience of the world into design? What are the creative consequences

of  “designing from within?”
Welcome to The Inner Studio.



“The Inner Studio is a radical, deeply grounding, work of the imagination….a summons to greater consciousness regarding the construction and design of daily life.”

– James Hollis.



“You need not read more than the first two pages of this book to realize that you are reading a truth that well may save our culture from the rapid depersonalization that our ever-expanding built world has created.”

– Dr. Paula M. Reeves. 



“In his unique and truly original text, Andrew Levitt draws from a deep understanding of psychology and architecture to produce a ‘manual’ for designers to foster these inveterate connections.”

– Dr. Alberto Perez-Gomez.
