Presenters Nikos Salingaros and Richard Taylor will discuss the latest scientific findings on our brain and human perceptual system architecture and how they might help explain the existence of certain ornamental tropes, such as fractals, in cultures around the world. Ornament will be examined from the perspective of mathematical properties, biophilia, and neuroscience. How can ornament help us create architecture more in tune with our neurological needs?
This event is sponsored by the Yale School of Architecture, The Franke Program in Science and the Humanities, and the MacMillan Center at Yale.
