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

NAAD Master aims to produce high calibre professional figures able to work as designers and 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 and enhancing cognitive processes, starting from scientific acquisitions and evidences, 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 emotional engagement of users developing their activities and pursuing their goals, inside buildings.

03

Transmit knowledge capable to wittingly aim the design of space to the creation of an attunement between the pre-cognitive desires and the multisensorial experience of users, in different and particular environments where community activities are developed.

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, prior individually and then through their integration, will be analyzed in relation to the physiology of the 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


From the next February to April 2019, students will deal with the development 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, arising from these underpinnings, the development of language and thought. 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 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 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 the students the instruments to be able to transform and erect buildings in cities, taking care of the needs of users. In the first part, will be bridged the physiology of the emotion with the architectural features able to attune people and settings. Then, ten days will be organised per some study cases: Senior Housing, Schools, Hospitals, Jails, Urban Spaces, Offices, Sports Facilities, Housing, Stations and Commercial Areas. Along with this last module will be launched the phase of the design for the students' thesis.
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

DESIGNING THE ATTUNEMENT

Will be composed of two parts. The first one is a 260 hours project work during which the participants will develop studies and writings about one building or public areas belonging to one of the ten typologies analysed in the third module. This preliminary investigation will be carried out through in situ studies, interviews with users, focus groups, and photos. The aim is to take control of the instruments given by the Master. The second part, of 100 hours, will be necessary to the design of the building, or of the open areas, that will complete the final dissertation.
