Dreaming Architectural Spaces into Reality; A Digital Platform for Generating Architecture Form from Cognitive Responses

Sep 23, 2016

The intention of this cognitive design tool is to: a) transform our notion space by developing an entirely new tool for realizing architectural design; b) train designers to have more diligent control of their cognition by assigning form making algorithms associated with neurological stimulation; c) create meaningful and unique spaces that have not been created before due to learned aesthetics in the architecture practice today; and d) open up the practice of design to those who are limited from using their hands or sight in the design process. The results of this design inquiry can be used to initiate a series of individualized experiences of architectural sites which respond to the visitors’ emotional states. This cognitive design tool is a stepping-stone to visually articulate architecture which is responsive to the constant fluctuations of human thought and emotion.
