Celebrate this year’s LFA theme ‘Act’ by discovering the new science of how architecture shapes our brains and behaviour.
The two main forces that drove human evolution are communication and action– throughout history, the social function brought rise to communities, the motor function created cities. To the human brain, the world itself is a call for action. Moving around and doing things, the most rudimentary yet the most complex brain functions, are how we explore the environment, how we interact, and how we learn. In building and designing the environment, we built ourselves. Consequently, everything we build and design should be a call for action.
Find out how architecture shapes our cognition, emotion, and finally, behaviour– in a talk by architect and brain scientist Michaela Mitrovic.
