2nd Annual Neurodiversity and the Built Environment: Immersive Experiences

October 22, 2021 , 9:00 AM 5:00 PM

Building upon last year’s symposium, Neurodiversity: Building Community and Rethinking the Built Environmentthis year’s dialogue focuses on immersive experiences, responsive environments, spatial interactions, and experimental evaluative and physiological measuring tools and criteria. It also includes advocacy, spatial and social guidelines, and bottom up and organic initiatives. 

These serial events are intensely cross-disciplinary and aim towards critical interactions addressing all-inclusive ways for inhabiting and perceiving our environments. They aim to stimulate international dialogue amongst designers, artists, medical field experts, tech companies, educational institutions, advocates and neurodiverse people and their caregivers.

This event is organized by Severino Alfonso and Loukia Tsafoulia as part of the Synesthetic Research and Design Lab, along with Dr. Wendy Ross and Sabra Townsend from the Center for Autism and Neurodiversity, Jefferson Health. The symposium supports the research conducted by the Interior Design 7 course in the College of Architecture and the Built Environment, taught by Severino Alfonso and Loukia Tsafoulia.
