How the Built Environment Enhances Your Mind’s Health (Members Only)

May 16, 2024

A lecture, book signing, and cocktail reception with international architect and neuroscientist Tye Farrow.

How do buildings make us feel? How can they make us feel better?

Working at the emerging intersection of neuroscience and architecture, Tye Farrow will explain how our mind, and its various sensory systems, interacts with our built environment to enhance or harm our health and well-being. Tye bridges the gap in knowledge between the therapeutic medical world and the design community to reveal how the intentional shaping of our environment can support our physical and neurological well-being

Doors open at 5:45pm.

This is a members only event. DAF Membership will be verified upon ticket purchase. To become a Denver Architecture Foundation member, click here.
