Room 202 AB / Convention Center Second Floor
What do we know of the built environment's effect on the physical and mental well-being of its users? How does what we design influence the psychology of the people who interact with our buildings? What can architects learn from mental health professionals about the connections between space and psyche? This session will draw on interdisciplinary research conducted by an architect and a psychoanalyst, and will examine how the allied fields of psychoanalysis and psychology might inform - and possibly transform - our thinking of architecture and design. This session will explore key ideas and concepts connecting the relationship between the physical design of space, and the resulting effects on mental health and well-being through case studies and projects at the scale of the individual, building, and the city.
