Guest Speaker

Suchi Reddy

Architect, Design Research and Neuroaesthetics

 

Should form follow function…or should it follow feeling? Do we build and design houses…or habitats? Learn how cutting edge research is revealing how aesthetic experiences are entering our minds through the portal of the senses–Do we design based on sense perception? Learn why aesthetic experiences are an “evolutionary imperative” and are essential to our well being.

Susan Magsamen, Executive Director, Brain Science Institute, Johns Hopkins University, and Suchi Reddy, President, Reddymade Architecture and Design,  will discuss recent developments on how science is influencing design. This exclusive interview, with two of the foremost thinkers in science and design , will change the way you look at design and architecture. Neuroaesthetics as a design discipline has arrived!
