Join the SAH/SCC as we welcome Michael A. Arbib, author of When Brains Meet BuildingsA Conversation Between Neuroscience and Architecture (Oxford University Press, 2021).  Arbib will share the science behind architecture, illustrating his points with buildings both famous and domestic.

Arbib, a pioneer in the interdisciplinary study of computers and brains, has long studied brain mechanisms. He has also spent the last decade in conversation with architects. This makes him a unique authority on the intersection of architecture and neuroscience.  He currently teaches at the University of California, San Diego and is a Professor Emeritus, at USC.

In the book, as Arbib converses with the reader, he presents action-oriented perception, memory, and imagination as well as atmosphere, aesthetics, and emotion as keys to analyzing the experience and design of architecture. He also explores what it might mean for buildings to have "brains" and illuminates all this with an appreciation of the biological and cultural evolution that supports the diverse modes of human living that we know today.

Authors on Architecture: When Brains Meet Buildings, Sunday, September 25, 2022; 1:00 PM PST; $5; Zoom connection information sent upon registration.
