Understanding of the characteristics of places that support or inhibit creative behavior is a highly valued but neglected area of research. This may be due in part to the absence of a framework for understanding the relationship of creativity and place. Three hundred sixty-one individuals responded to the question “Where are the places you have your most creative thoughts?” and described their most and least creative environments. The responses were then categorized using Mehrabian & Russell’s (1974) pleasure-arousal hypothesis and framework. Results have strong implications for designers and organizational decision makers.
