Past Events

Cognitive Architecture: An Evening with Author Ann Sussman

Author Ann Sussman will discuss her recent book Cognitive Architecture, written with Justin B. Hollander, which reveals the subconscious tendencies at work when we navigate the world around us. These 'hidden' predispositions reflect our long evolutionary trip as revealed by recent research in psychology and neuroscience, and can help explain why we favor certain urban conditions and building configurations and shun others. 

Ann Sussman, AIA, is an architect, artist, writer, and community organizer. With Justin Hollander, she created the Open Neighborhood Project, using art, craft and digital tools to increase public participation in planning, and earning the Commonwealth's "Gold Star Award."

Her studio is at ArtScape in the Bradford Mill, an art and business enclave in Concord, Massachusetts.
