Mathematics and Architecture: Building Nurturing Environments

As human beings, our mental and physical health depend to a large extent upon our reaction to our environment. Because of this, humans have always designed, built, and managed the environment to optimize this interaction. However, modern 20th century architecture has been creating environments that make us feel uncomfortable, depressed, and anxious. It is believed that certain mathematical design rules can be applied to urban planning and architecture to create new, nurturing environments that improve our mental and physical health. Join us to hear Dr. Nikos Salingaros, UTSA Mathematics professor, Urbanist & Architectural Theorist, discuss this theory.

    As far as the topic of discussion about architecture and environment for the future I would like to here what Dr. Salingaros has to say about subterranean urban development? The applications made possible by TBM's (Tunnel Boring Machines) open the door for more economical structures under inland cities for expansion. I believe we will see future highways for electric vehicles become more common in this century globally.
