Conscious Cities – Neuroscience and Architecture Conference

Museum of Architecture and THECUBE

Tuesday, March 1, 2016

9:00 AM to 6:00 PM (GMT)

Location: Arup, 13 Fitzroy Street, London W1T 4BQ

In partnership and support of Arup and Museum of Architecture we are please to bring you Conscious Cities, which is a one-day conference that aims to explore the relationship between neuroscience and architecture. By bringing together neuroscientists, architects, engineers, urban planners and property developers, the conference aims to offer necessary tools for understanding how the built environment impacts our cognitive functions, while also showing how professionals can use research in neuroscience to design better spaces and cities for the future.

Conscious Cities will bring together some of the most innovative and engaging experts in the field. A practical workshop and a publication will expand upon the findings and further disseminate the discourse at the conference.
