Designing Enriched Environments: Using Kinetic Design as the Impetus for Activity-Based Neuroplasticity and Neurogenesis

Sep 20, 2012

The researchers define complexity as operable and interactive architectural features that they call Kinetic Design (KD). Architectural features that encompass KD include operable walls and screens, components that yield changes in light and shadow across spaces, as well as options for moving through spaces visually and physically. The researchers offer design components that are derived from research, a case study model exploring these design features, and methods for testing and quantifying the results.
