Sculpting the Architectural Mind

This conference considers the roles that applied neuroscience has played and might play in the education of architects.

Co-organized by Dan Bucsescu of Pratt, Michael A. Arbib of the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture, and Atelier of Digital Design founder Ralph S. Steenblik.

Examining the past and potential role of applied neuroscience within architectural education, the conference touched on topics such as design cognition and the effect of digital media production. "Sculpting the Architectural Mind" is both analytical and speculative, searching for new means of integrating digital tools into the design process and questioning what effects such an approach would have upon the built environment.
