Architecture: Activating the Brain focuses on two elements of design: how architecture and the physical environment can activate the mind, body, and brain; and understanding the unconscious in art, mind, and brain. Based on the outline of a future book, Steven Holl discusses several of his older and current projects, explaining how he works with material structure and expanding on his own relationship with light. The presentation of projects provides an opportunity for the audience to pose questions and engage.
