Applying Neuroscience to the Architectural Features of Masonic Temples

Join Square & Compass in speaking with Prof. Andrea de Paiva, founder of NeuroAU & Professor of Neurology/Built Spaces.

In April 2021, Square & Compass was honoured to speak with Prof. Andrea de Paiva, founder of NeuroAU & Professor of Neurology/Built Spaces, about the application of neuroscientific principles to architecture and built environments (including Masonic Temples).

The relationship between a built environment and its users is a fascinating topic; especially over the last year as COVID-19 related restrictions have greatly altered the way a user interacts with his/her built environments.

This is especially true when considering the way a Freemason interacts with his Masonic Temple.
