El Capítulo LIMA del Centre for Conscious Design organiza el Conscious Cities Festival, durante 5 días, entre el 19 y 23 de octubre. Puedes leer más en esta nota. A continuación conocerás lo que estamos preparando para el segundo día, martes 20.
2 | EDUCACIÓN Y SALUD (ver programa)
En el primer día abordamos preguntas relacionadas a conceptos y metodologías que usamos en el proceso de hacer ciudad. Desde el segundo día, vinculamos y aplicamos las reflexiones previas en las diferentes esferas de nuestra vida, empezando por el ámbito de la educación y la salud. Para ello, contaremos con educadores, artistas, neurocientíficos, además de arquitectos y urbanistas. Todos nos ayudarán a explorar desde lo interdisciplinario la relación que existe entre educación, salud, arquitectura y urbanismo.
Algunas preguntas que nos haremos son: ¿De qué manera influye la arquitectura en los procesos educativos y pedagógicos? ¿Es la ciudad un espacio de aprendizaje o cómo podemos hacer uso de sus diferentes espacios para lograr aprendizajes significativos? ¿Qué efectos tiene la ciudad en nuestra salud y en nuestra mente? ¿Cuál es la importancia de aprender sobre los efectos de la arquitectura y la ciudad en nuestro cerebro? Todas estas preguntas nos llevarán a importantes reflexiones y síntesis en el día 5.
¡Súmate a Conscious Lima!
Andrea Jelić is an architect and researcher dedicated to understanding how the built environment affects people’s bodily and emotional experiences through the lenses of enactive-embodied cognitive science and phenomenology. She is an Assistant Professor in Social Sustainability within Architecture and member of BBAR—Brain, Body, Architecture Research group at Aalborg University, Department of Architecture, Design and Media Technology in Denmark. Andrea is Advisory Council member of ANFA—Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture and faculty member in Master program “Neuroscience applied to architectural design” at IUAV University of Venice. She holds a PhD in Architecture from Sapienza University of Rome and Master of Architecture from University of Belgrade. Her research interests and ongoing projects have the notions of embodiment and experience at their core and include, among others, investigating the relationship between body, stress, language, and spatial experience; exploring how the built environment can provide opportunities for children’s play and playful learning through co-creation and research-based design (project funded by Capital of Children Playful Minds, Billund, Denmark); examining the links between affordances, affective atmospheres, and meaning-making in architecture—a project which inspired the co-edited special issue “Embodiment and meaning-making: Interdisciplinary perspectives on architectural heritage” in The Journal of Architecture (forthcoming 2021).
