Learn more about the fascinating correlation between neuroscience and architecture and how this emerging field is a game-changer that is here to stay for those in architecture, urban planning and design. Through highlighted examples in nature and the built environment, this course shares quantifiable principles for the architects’ tool kit gained through scientific studies. The course also explores how architecture can support culture and traditions to heighten and deepen our sense of identity and inclusion in the built environment. Finally, we discuss biophilia, the restorative property of nature and our connection to WHAT IS ALIVE AND BEAUTIFUL. Q&A with the author, Donald H. Ruggles.
The film is followed by a Q & A with the author led by Alec Johnson, AIA.
