August 13-17, 2018 at NewSchool
This second edition of the Summer Intersession program is an intensive course in neuroscience as it relates to the design of the built environment. It has been developed for an audience consisting of firm executives, upper-level graduate and post-doctoral students and other engaged in architectural and design practice and scholarship.
The 2018 program theme is “Neuroscience for Architecture and Beyond.” The program will explore the following perspectives:
- The State of the Art: Neuroscience for Architecture and Design
- Neuroscience and the Debate Between Science and Art
- Neuroscience for Healthy Urbanism
- Neuroscience for Art and Design
Classes will be led by NewSchool faculty as well as notable collaborators including neuroscientists from UCSD and the Salk Institute. Activities will include lectures, master classes, panel discussions, field trips and field research. Specific presentation topics include neuroscience in architectural practice, neuromorphic architecture, neuroaesthetics and more. The fifth day, Friday, August 17th, consists of an optional morning tour of the Salk Institute and The Scripps Research Institute, led by NYC architect, Billie Tsien. Participants will have ample opportunities for interaction and for discussion with presenters. Classes will take place at NewSchool.
