What are the possible applications of neuroscience in architecture and interior design? What relationships does the space host?
The recent discoveries in the neuroscientific field relating to codyfying the space will be the theme of the meeting “Architecture + Neuroscience” to be held on February 24, in Milan, organized by the Franco Albini Foundation and sponsored by Sedus and Kreon.
The goal of the meeting “Architecture + Neuroscience. Dialogue on wellbeing within the built spaces“ is to provide useful ideas to architects and designers, with a focus on workplace design.
Two international professionals will open the debate:
architect and prof. Jonathan Mosley will explore the real, symbolic and imaginative dimension of architecture in consideration of the interdependence of bodies and objects.
professor Leonardo Fogassi will address the activation of mirror neuron and their correlation with space, underlying the concepts of spatial barrier and purpose related to space.
The results of the research (carried out by the team composed by architect Nicoletta Brancaccio, professor and neuroscientist Stefano Rozzi, doctor Federico Niola and psychologist Davide Gattoni) will try to answer to some crucial questions : what is space? What happens in it? What relationships do it host?
And most importantly, how does our brain encode space?
Ernst Holzapfel of Sedus and Marnix Schrooyen of Kreon will conclude by telling their own experience on the field.
