College of Architecture + The Arts’ Dr. Winifred E. Newman, Associate Professor was invited to present a paper at the 2014 Neuro Logics Symposium in Toronto. This year’s Symposium was entitled “Architecture, Starting with the Brain.” Its emphasis was on the notion that the brain and its neuroscience are necessary aspects of architecture, that, according to the Symposium’s flyer, “[t]he lessons of the decade of the brain can help us rethink central aspects of architectural expertise and reformulate elements of its conceptual foundation.”

Sarah Williams Goldhagen, Architecture Critic, The New Republic
Jonathan Hale, University of Nottingham
