A+N/Nexus Workshop: Integrating Knowledge across Neuroscience and Architecture
A workshop to shape the future of neuroscience and architecture education
Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture (ANFA) is an international organization whose goal is to promote the use of neuroscience and cognitive science research to improve the design of the built environment. Because ANFA serves many constituencies interested in integrating neuroscience and architecture (such as students in architecture and science at different stages in their undergraduate and graduate careers, as well as professional architects and neuroscientists), each group needs distinct bodies of knowledge and skills for pursuing work at the intersection of neuroscience and architecture. We are also seeing an increase in interest in architectural practice and in the academy in pursuing work at the intersection and a demand for research (by clients, practitioners, etc.).
This workshop focused on the education needs of graduate students and professionals. It centered on a panel of experts, who have successfully made connections between neuroscience and architecture.
