ANFA 2016 – Connections: BridgeSynapses
The ANFA Conference will explore, from a scientific basis, the range of human experiences with elements of architecture, through a collaboration between architects and neuroscientists. We invite neuroscientists, architects and other professionals to present research and research-based design that will illuminate the neuroscience of the experience of architecture and design of the built environment, as well as the use of insights from neuroscience to develop new approaches to the design of intelligent buildings. Communication, knowledge sharing, collaboration, partnership, integration, and relation to a broader context will permeate every aspect of ANFA 2016. The goal is to inspire ideas and new collaborations that will ignite change and unlock the potential of Neuroscience for Architecture.

Maurice Cox's Detroit

How an ambitious planner and progressive new development are shaping a city that has reached a historic tipping point.

The first time I visited Detroit, five years ago, I got a grand tour one evening from one of the city’s most tireless boosters, advertising exec and author Toby Barlow. He took me to an avant-garde piano concert in the hip neighborhood of Corktown, an artisanal pizza joint near Eastern Market, and, oddly, a wrap party for a Hollywood movie held at a soul food restaurant downtown.

During my trip I realized that if I tagged along with someone like Barlow, I could find a city that felt vital and urbane, a connect-the-dots puzzle of imagination and ambition, in which small-scale and entrepreneurial efforts were leading the way. There was an awakening here, but you had to know where to find it... Full Article HERE

A Pro Organizer's New Orleans Home (Named Barbarella!)
HOUSE TOUR 
 

Name: Tami Hills
Location: Central City — New Orleans, Louisiana
Size: 1,266 square feet
Years lived in: Owned 6 years

Tami Hills never imagined she would buy a move-in ready home. The professional organizer and DIYer dreamed of buying an old New Orleans house she could fully renovate. But after looking at nearly a hundred properties in a fiercely competitive market, she was exhausted. "I would fall in love and be outbid. It happened over and over again," she explained.

When she spotted a contemporary home, still under construction, her interest came as a surprise. The Central City property was the fourth of eleven affordable and environmentally-friendly homes that have been designed and built by Tulane Architecture students in struggling neighborhoods throughout the Crescent City after Hurricane Katrina. The style, which she describes as "clean, seamless, and easy," was a refreshing change from the properties she had previously considered. She placed an offer before the house even hit the market. 

"I thought I was going to purchase an old shotgun, but I fell in love with the house. How could you not? She's amazing! She speaks for herself," Tami says with cheerful animation. Tami uses female pronouns when talking about her home. She explains,"My mom always named her cars when I was a kid, so I call my house Barbarella. She's sexy like the movie in the '60s."

Even though she fell hard for Barbarella, embracing a home with modern design elements was a challenge for Tami. "My core style isn't modern...I had to be cautious about how I would overlap and layer my more eclectic style within the space." Six years later, the happy, colorful, and bright home manages to feel peaceful and exuberant at the same time, much like Tami herself. Lime green and turquoise accents, colorful textiles and artwork, and an eclectic mix of decor, add a burst of personality and levity to the home's simple, streamlined design.
