Curiosity as a Design Tool

Sep 23, 2016

This research program is aimed at potentiating cognitive improvement in users via architectural designs informed by neuroscience. Outcomes from this study will facilitate the development of curiosity metrics and their application in the design of built environments. Such an approach could be adopted with benefits for society by improving learning in schools, memory and cognitive enhancement in retirement communities, and rehabilitation facilities.
