SR&DL is happy to have co-organized the 3rd Annual International Neurodiversity and the Built Environment Symposium: PlaceMaking.
Building on the last two years' symposia (2020's Building Community and Rethinking the Built Environment and 2021's Immersive Experiences), this year's dialogue will focus on the notions of belonging, placemaking, and sensemaking over a two-part symposium taking place in October 2022 and spring 2023. These serial events are intensely cross-disciplinary and aim toward critical interactions addressing all-inclusive ways of inhabiting and perceiving our environments. They aim to stimulate international dialogue among designers, artists, medical field experts, computer scientists, tech companies, educational institutions, advocates, neurodiverse people, and their caregivers.
The event is co-organized by the Synesthetic Research & Design Lab by the College of Architecture & the Built Environment at Thomas Jefferson University; Center for Autism and Neurodiversity at Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health; Inclusive Design Research Centre, University College Dublin; SMARTLab at University College Dublin, Skelligs (Ireland) and Niagara (Canada).
