Neurodiversity and the Built Environment Symposium: PlaceMaking

The event is free of charge and open to all.

Building on the last two years symposia FALL2020 Building Community and Rethinking the Built Environment and FALL2021 Immersive Experiences respectively, this year they are looking to expand the scope of the dialogue with a focus on the notions of belonging, placemaking and sensemaking over a two-parts symposium during October 2022 and Spring 2023.

These serial events are intensely cross-disciplinary and aim towards critical interactions addressing all-inclusive ways for inhabiting and perceiving our environments. They aim to stimulate international dialogue amongst architects, planners, designers, artists, therapists, medical field experts, tech companies, educational institutions, advocates, neurodivergent people and their caregivers.

The event is co-organized by the Synesthetic Research and Design Lab, College of Architecture and the Built Environment at Thomas Jefferson University, the Jefferson Health Center for Autism and Neurodiversity and the University College Dublin Inclusive Design Research Centre of Ireland in partnership with SMARTlab teams in Dublin Skelligs and Niagara.
