Why Is Neuroarchitecture Trending?
At a time when we are becoming more sensitive towards our environment and taking steps to make it better for our future generations, architecture is one of the most important aspects that would help achieve this goal. Architecture is not just visual, it involves our mind, too. The feeling of uneasiness in a particular setting and a sense of happiness in the other is all but the mind. Here comes Neuroarchitecture.
Neuroarchitecture has emerged as a discipline which allows architects to create designs that are driven by the way your brain reacts to a certain environment and ambience. The ones practicing it do not look at the trends and various styles, they look at the minds of people who will be living in that particular architecture.
So, what makes neuroarchitecture trending?
What is neuroarchitecture?
A mix of two disciplines – neuroscience and architecture – make up for Neuroarchitecture. The architects are now designing cities and homes based on how a human brain would react to a particular setting. The aim is to provide an environment that stimulates the mind, eases your nerves and makes the environment a better place for future generations. So, moving ahead of the trends that are short-lived, with Neuroarchitecture, architects want to achieve a structure that is more about the people who will inhabit it. Neuroscientists are also working towards a study that reads how the mind responds to virtual reality and to real spaces.
How can it help?
With changing times and development happening almost across all cities in India, neuroarchitecture could be helpful. It could allow the architects to design what will stimulate a human brain and also make it more productive, sensitive to the environment and happy.
Imagine how stressful it can get in urban cities that are highly populated, noisy and polluted. So what if this study could help design architecture that not only is functional but also allows the mind to connect with the environment. With many people suffering from neurological and psychological ailments, a city developed keeping in mind how a human brain would react could help achieve overall well-being.
While this could help at a macro level, when implemented in individual homes the impact would be cascading.
