On March 6 and 7, New York's Pratt Institute will host "Sculpting the Architectural Mind," a conference exploring the connection between "Neuroscience and the Education of an Architect."
Examining the past and potential role of applied neuroscience within architectural education, the conference will touch 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. The themes will be explored over four sessions spaced over the conference's two days.
"Sculpting the Architectural Mind" is 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. Free and open to the public, the conference commences at 9 30 AM on March 6 with "What the Hand Tells the Architect's Brain". An exhibition and opening reception will follow on the same evening. For more information on the schedule and to RSVP, click here.
