Well, good news—you might not have to. In this session we get to ask ourselves, why not both? We will explore the dichotomies in our lives that could be hidden gems, and practice converting the tension we feel into positive, boundless energy.

Antonia Ciaverella is a graduate of Virginia Tech and brings a holistic perspective to the design process with certifications in Evidence-Based Design, LEED, WELL and Fitwel. She is currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Neuroscience, with the intent of fostering a dialogue between neuroscience research and architectural practice. She continues to explore these relationships through published articles including “Transformative Healthcare: The Roles of Technology, Lean and Evidence-Based Design” and “Sustainable Action: The Roles of Design, Behavior and Thought.”

In 2017, Antonia was the recipient of the Construction Institute’s (CI) Emerging Young Professional Leadership Award, which recognizes contributions and dedication to the CI and Young Professional peers. She is a member of the Connecticut Green Building Council, the Environmental Design Research Association, the International Association of Applied Psychology and the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture.

Antonia is herself a work-in-progress, looking for the common ground between architecture and neuroscience, cityscapes and acres of rescued farm animals. She was selected as a 2018 Emerging Architect from the Connecticut Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, which recognizes innovative contributions and commitment to the field of architecture.
