Beauty: Lifting the Spirits and Delighting the Senses 

12-13-2021 12:00 PM

Exploring the concept of beauty from two perspectives in neuroscience and the natural and built environment. As the concept of beauty and aesthetics finds its way back into the AIA Framework for Design Excellence principles, it sets the stage for thought provoking questions such as:

  • How can architecture engage the senses and connect people to place?
  • What makes a project one that endures over time, one that people will unite around and preserve?
  • How might our designs benefit from key findings in neuroscience to enhance the human experience with a sense of delight, wonder, lingering, learning, and compassion.

As we strive to achieve in architecture - what is not yet fully known about the human capacity for beauty and neurodiversity - we can discover together as new possibilities for the future.
