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.

NEWS !!
Together with some Companies, we are working on several Grants. In the next weeks will be published the Calls.

| goals

This Master aims to produce high calibre professional figures able to work as project managers in national and international companies involved in the realization of major works and social commitment to community, technicians and directors in public authorities of Ministries and capital cities dealing with the quality implementation of the welfare spaces.

01

Provide the tools to design architectures able to reach the goal, capable to assure wellness, starting from scientific acquisitions and axioms, making available thanks to the progress in neuroscientific studies, with particular reference to rest homes, hospitals, offices, public open spaces, schools, jails, stations, social housing, retail and sports facilities.

02

Give the opportune conditions for the growth of human being qualities by means of architectural design, thanks to the creation of contexts suitable for the consolidation of attention and awareness of users developing their activities and pursuing their goals inside those buildings.

03

Transmit knowledge capable to wittingly aim the design of space to the creation of a synergy between the pre-cognitive desires and the multisensorial experience of users in different and particular environment where community activities are set.

FIRST MODULE

Anatomy and physiology of 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 analyze the interaction between each element involved in the architectural process and the human sensory system. Light, topology, organization and use of space, geometry, rhythm, texture and matters, sounds and smells: all these elements, previously individually and then throught synaesthesia, will be analyzed in relation to fisiology of human sensory system.
The course of the research will be made of 120 hours of lessons divided in three parts of 40 hours to be developed in three weeks.

SECOND MODULE

Architecture and the system body-brain


During the first three months of 2018, students will be able to experience multisensory by themselves through a series of experiments: the goal is to acquire a deep awareness of the senses. Next to this, students will deal with the development and nature of emotions and feelings up to the arising of conscience: on these fundamentals, the link between the body and its movements and the development of language and feelings will be established. Finally, students will learn the connection running through empathy and architecture, from which each mean of design architectural atmospheres at one with the use of a space is gathered.
The course of the research will be made of 120 hours of lessons divided in three parts of 40 hours to be developed in three weeks.

THIRD MODULE

Pre-cognitive human demands and experience of architecture


This module will give to the students the instruments to be able to transform and erect new buildings in cities, taking care of the needs of users. In the first part, origins and features of people needs will be analyzed, starting from the point they decide to use a place. Then, ten days will be organized per each study case: Senior Housing, Schools, Hospitals, Jails, Urban Spaces, Offices, Sport Facilities, Housing, Stations and Commercial Areas.
The course of the research will be made of 120 hours of lessons divided in three parts of 40 hours to be developed in three weeks.

FOURTH MODULE

Post-Occupancy Evaluation

Will be composed of two parts. The first one is a 260 hour project work during which the partecipants will do a post-occupancy evaluation of one or more buildings or public areas belonging or not to the society they come from, each of them dealing with their own setting. This investigation will be carried out through in situ studies, interviews to users, focus groups, and photos, after a 15 hour lesson to arrange the final dissertation. The aim is to take control of the instruments given by the Master. The second part of 100 hours will be necessary to write the final dissertation.

The deadline for the NAAD enrollment is been postponed to the 6th of October

02| With the aim to bring on the ground the knowledge assimilated along the training, NAAD decided to welcome at the end of the last modules ten days focused on ten different themes. So, four projects from ten designing areas will be the examples around which students should organize their final thesis of degree. Selected projects and buildings, with the related thesis degree, will also be the core of the Exhibition Collateral Event of next Biennale Architettura Venezia 2018.

03| Considering the requests of admissions at NAAD from graduates and professionals of extra-designing disciplines, we decided to open the Master also to the human sciences degrees, as medicine, neuroscience or psychology, only as examples.
