PEOPLE CAN LIVE BETTER.
Neuroscience applied
to our urban environment
enhances our daily life.

Each day we are moved by expectations: these float in our conscious mind and into the deeper level of our being. Neuroscience and architecture, biology, anthropology, art, and science, now can help us to rebuild a richer attunement between us and the place we live. At NAAD in Venice, we have convened some of the most important professors, professionals, operators, managers and architects in these fields to bridge the gap between scientific theories and design.

| goals

Addressed to architects, designers and consultants of companies the Master aims to train people capable of completing projects and services centred on improving the human experience of architectural and urban space, to be included within design firms, real estate development groups and private and public services management companies.

01

NAAD transmits the scientific knowledge aimed to favour an architectural design able to create attunement between users' pre-cognitive expectations and multi-sensorial experience of space, according to the perception models developed by the neurosciences

02

The PostGraduate Master creates the basis for students to understand how to create the conditions, through the composition of architectural elements (topological and proxemic relationships, geometry, light, rhythm, texture, colour, materials, sound), for a regulated development of the emotions in the experience: this, in order to strengthen attention, memory, learning and the quality of social relations.

03

The course developed its program with particular reference to Airports, Factories, Hospitals, Hotels, Parks, Prisons, Retails Malls, Schools, Senior Residences, Social Housings, Stadium, Student Housings, Urban Spaces, Workplaces, to provide the tools to create architecture suitable to its use, able to improve the economics figures (ROI, SROI, Asset Value) of private and public companies.

FIRST MODULE

ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY OF THE ARCHITECTURAL PERCEPTION

During the first three months, students will be given the fundamentals to understand how our body is provided with a uniquely evolved range of systems able to receive signals from the outside world. Next, we will analyse the interaction between each element involved in the architectural process and the human sensory system. Light, topology, organisation and use of space, geometry, rhythm, texture and matters, sounds and smells: all these elements, prior individually and then through their integration, will be analysed concerning the physiology of the human sensory system.

The lasting of the Module will be made of 120 hours of lessons divided into three parts of 30 hours to be developed in three weeks, with other three classes' clusters of 10 hours each month, aimed to experience applications and tests.

SECOND MODULE

Architecture and the body-brain system

From the February to April 2020, students will deal with the evolution and nature of emotions and feelings up to the arising of conscience: on these fundamentals, they will focus the link between the body and its movements and consequently, deriving from these underpinnings, the development of language, thought and the same emotions. Finally, students will learn the bond running through empathy and architecture, from which each mean of design architectural atmospheres at one with the use of space is gathered. In the third week, students will work on the nature of the human pre-cognitive expectations, surging from the neuro-biological systems of primary emotions, related to the daily activities.

The lasting of the Module will be made of 120 hours of lessons divided into three parts of 30 hours to be developed in three weeks, with other three classes' clusters of 10 hours each month, aimed to experience applications and tests.

THIRD MODULE

Pre-cognitive human demands and experience of architecture

The third module will give the students the instruments to be able to transform and erect buildings in cities, taking care of the needs of users. NAAD will organise fourteen days on some study cases: Airports, Factories, Hospitals, Hotels, Parks, Prisons, Retail Malls, Schools, Senior Residences, Social Housings, Stadium, Student Housings, Urban Spaces, Workplaces. At the beginning of this last module will be launched the phase of the design for the students' thesis.

The lasting of the Module will be made of 120 hours of lessons divided in three parts of 30 hours to be developed in three weeks, with other three classes' clusters of 10 hours each month, aimed to experience applications and tests.

FOURTH MODULE

DESIGNING THE ATTUNEMENT

It will be divided into two parts: a 260-hour project work during which the participants of the Master, even within the companies that funded their Grants, or at other selected companies, each for their subject field of research, will develop an application design.

This phase of project planning, followed by a tutor with specific experience in the sector, preceded by 15 hours of lectures to prepare the thesis, will be carried out through in situ studies, interviews of the users of the places, focus groups, photographic surveys: all finalized to take control of the analysis tools provided by the Master. The second part of the 100-hour module will consist of the project translation of this experience into a final thesis.

__ Dead Line for the enrollment and information about NAAD: www.iuav.it/DEADLINE

__ Guidelines for the enrollment: www.iuav.it/GUIDELINE

01| NAAD Master pre-registration phase closed On September 16th
NAAD Master pre-registration phase closed.
We are glad to announce 29 candidates pre-enrolled, from all over the world. On October 1st, the names of those admitted and of the winners of the two scholarships will be announced.

02| Timing of the Teaching Activities
Each one of the three NAAD modules will be composed of three weekly lessons, one for each month. We defined two different ways to take part at NAAD Course, one for 'Full Residents in Venice, another for the 'Flying Residents', who will come in Venice each month, only for the weekly classes.
Each one of the cluster of weekly lessons, from Monday to Friday, will be preceded by an Opening Lesson by the Responsible of the Master NAAD, Davide Ruzzon. These lessons will be held on the Friday afternoon before the beginning of the incoming week of lessons.

After the weekly lessons, the Monday after, a tutor will introduce different kind of Tests and Experiences, to be developed in a team or alone, with the aim to Apply the knowledge acquired the week before. These 'homeworks’ will cover all the two weeks, after the weekly lessons, and we’ll be shared in a Seminar during Friday, at the end of the Second Week.

Opening Lessons by Davide Ruzzon, the Monday about Tests and Experiences and the Friday about the Seminar, all these teachings will be shared in Live Streaming with the 'Flying Residents', who freely could in this way to apply in their cities the programs.
