About

The Architectural Studies program offered at Newschool of Architecture and Design is designed for students who want to advance their knowledge of the discipline through focused study and design-studio work.

Overview

Students select a lecture course sequence of either Neuroscience for Architecture or Healthy Urbanism.

Track I: Neuroscience for Architecture: Newschool is at the forefront of research into the connection between neuroscience and architecture. Our research explores the power of architecture on the mind and how neuroscientific concepts might be applied to design. We are a charter member of the Design Health Consortium, a collaboration among 11 architecture and medical colleges dedicated to researching these connections. We are also a founding member of AIA’s Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture (ANFA).

Track II: Healthy Urbanism: There is growing acknowledgement that the way cities and neighborhoods are designed directly impacts the health of residents, workers, and visitors. At the same time, many designers and planners fail to create healthy urban environments through a lack of understanding, experience, and training. The Healthy Urbanism track provides a grounding in the processes and design strategies that promote healthful cities.
