New Interface Lectures / Discussions

UCL x ANFA - Architecture and Mind

The Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture (ANFA) in the USA have led the discussion at this intersection for two decades. In a new partnership, ANFA and UCL will set up a UK chapter centred in UCL. Two introductory online panel sessions, moderated by The Bartlett's Dr Fiona Zisch and Prof Hugo Spiers from the Spatial Cognition Laboratory at UCL, launch this new partnership. In each session, UCL academics and affiliates will give a set of short presentations as ‘lightning talks’ intended to incite discussion. Both sessions are open to the public, and audience members from the wider UCL and ANFA communities can contribute to the discussion. Learn More
