Neuro-architecture & Workplace Design: How Space Can Affect Performance and Well-being

Sep 23, 2016

This research studies the challenge of combining corporate contemporary needs with neuro-architecture. Some of the questions within this area of study are: What is the relation between workspace and well-being? How can biophilia affect performance? How can workspace influence the amygdala? Is the space able to activate the limbic system and, therefore, affect memory, creativity and emotions? How can workspace stimulate concentration and learning? Can workspace design improve sociability and collaboration?
