Session Description

The Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture was founded almost 20 years ago and provides a body of knowledge connecting neuroscience to design. This session explores how you can apply neuroscience to design. The top 10 projects over the past 10 years will provide a retrospective that shows how projects are influenced by neuroscientific and clinical research. Hear about the process of integrating research and science in built settings, and see how neuro-architectural principles have been applied in these award-winning buildings. The lessons and tools offered are applicable to a wide range of projects and specialties.
