The Teddy Bear Principle


When buildings are smaller than expected like these at Mahogany Bay Village that are only 14 feet wide, but you meet codes on window sizes, the windows look unusually large on the face of the building, giving the building a subtly different proportion more similar to an infant than an adult, and to which we seem genetically predisposed to find endearing. This is known as the Teddy Bear Principle because it works on bears as well as humans.
