Isabella Pasqualini
The architectural avatar – aesthetics, biomimicry and moods
Ever since ancient times, the human body has been considered as the main point of reference for the conception of architectural spaces. Today, cognitive neuroscience and modern technologies such as immersive virtual reality enable us to analyse the influence of architectural interiors on feelings and emotions.

Isabella Pasqualini is a researcher and an architect. She studies the connection between body and space by use of immersive and interactive multimedia technologies, with specific emphasis on the multisensory aspect of the environment. She is currently invited researcher at the Neuroprosthetics Centre and a teaching member of the LéaV all’École Nationale Supérieure de Versailles.
