Exploring human scaled streetscapes in situations of extreme densification and new extreme high-rise: applying neuro-architecture and artificial intelligence.

The emergence of a new generation of technology and methods borrowed from the field of neuroscience, specifically eye-tracking, open up the possibility of gaining a deeper understanding of physical-social interrelationships in streetscapes. To provide more accurate practice-proven and tested design solutions, we conduct a two-year explorative research on design principles for liveable streetscapes.

Together with the Chairs of Urban Analytics and Play & Civic Media, a consortium of urban designers and city planners, we trace, analyze and unlock spatial design solutions for new streetscapes in high density settings. An international advisory board and a representation of Amsterdam Clients of Spatial projects complete our consortium.

The goals of our research are threefold. It aims to produce more practice proven knowledge about possible design solutions, creating better neighborhoods; transfer and translate the applied emerging technologies into the practice of spatial design; and contribute to the new fields of neuro-architecture and Artificial Intelligence.
