As a Highly Sensitive Person, we often live in a world that compromises our sensitivity. It is so necessary for us to have safe spaces, especially where will live and work. That's why I am so excited to speak to and introduce you to Professor of Neuroscience for Architecture, Andréa de Paiva.
Master of Arts (Middlesex University, London), architect, and urban planner (University of São Paulo), Andréa bridges research, education, and design in her work. Her research interests involve the interdisciplinary field of cognitive science applied to architecture and urbanism, as well as architectural theory, in order to better understand how the physical environment can affect individuals and society.
Andréa is the co-author of the book Triuno: Neurobusiness and Quality of Life. In addition, she is the founder of NeuroAU an online space that aims to discuss and disseminate knowledge about the links between cognitive science and architecture & urbanism.
