Speaker information

Nick Tyler, Chadwick Professor of Civil Engineering, UCL
Hugo Spiers, Senior Lecturer in Experimental Psychology, UCL

Ever since Daedalos – sometimes credited as the 'first architect' – built the legendary labyrinth to contain the mythical minotaur, complex spaces have played an important part in culture.

Following the inaugural 'Think Space' in February, 'The Eye, the Brain and the Building', this event will look specifically at complex spaces, how we remember and navigate them, and how and why they have cultural significance. Drawing on ongoing research by two speakers, UCL’s Professor of engineering Nick Tyler and neuroscientist Dr Hugo Spiers, it will shed new insights on how we inhabit and use complex spaces.

The event will be followed by a drinks reception in the UCL South Cloisters.

Think Space is a new forum for cross-disciplinary discussion and debate at UCL curated by Bartlett School of Architecture alum Jeremy Melvin.
