MTalks—Sensory Architecture: Designing Space for Autism Spectrum

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

16 Dec 2019

How are architects and spatial designers creating inclusive spaces for people with autism spectrum conditions? To explore this question, join a diverse group of Monash University researchers and designers, including MADA’s Dr Chris Cottrell; architect—and principal of empathic-experimental practice BLOXAS—Anthony Clarke; and Dr Beth Johnson, who leads Monash’s Autism/ADHD Genetics and Neurodevelopment (MAGNET) project.

The notion of neurodiversity—the breadth and difference in the ways we relate to our environments—raises a number of questions for spatial designers. How do different sensory modes enhance our understanding of the world? What approaches can designers use to engage with these diverse experiences, and how can this lead to more inclusive, higher-quality spatial environments?

Drop in, as the end of the year approaches, to investigate these vital concerns alongside this expert panel—you’re bound to leave with different, and more curious, considerations of space and the mind.
