Victoria Heath, Westminster alumna and Senior Biomedical Scientist, will be sharing her incredible experience travelling to Sierra Leone to work in a treatment centre as part of the UK Government’s response to the Ebola virus outbreak.
Victoria’s role in helping to curb the Ebola outbreak is both inspiring and a great example of effective crisis management under intense pressure. She explains: ‘I strongly believe that people who are lucky enough to have knowledge and resources should use them to help those that do not.’

WHAT IT TAKES TO DESIGN WITH THE MIND IN MIND

Architects for centuries have depended on intuition and experience to create environments that generate feelings of awe and spirituality in cathedrals, feelings of powerlessness in totalitarian architecture, feelings of calm and contemplative intimacy with nature in a Japanese teahouse. However, do we really know how what we design will be received by the user and the public, both practically and aesthetically?
Neuroscience is making real progress in understanding how the mind responds to the environment. This talk will illustrate aspects of this new knowledge and how Ian Ritchie Architects designed, alongside neuroscientists, the Sainsbury Welcome Centre for Neural Networks and Behaviour at UCL.
