Eve Edelstein  M.Arch., Ph.D. (neuroscience), EDAC, Fellow-American Academy Audiology

Dr. Eve Edelstein is research director of the Human Experience Lab at Perkins + Will, and works with project teams, universities, institutions and clients to integrate clinical and scientific data in the design process to enhance the impact of design on human experience, thinking, performance, emotions, behavior and health itself. Dr. Edelstein’s translational design approach and neuro-architectural process has been applied in award winning built projects in the United States, Canada and China. In addition, Eve’s background in ethnography informs the development of pre and post-occupancy surveys for P+W, leveraging research in existing and emerging biosensors, environmental trackers and virtual reality simulations to measure the impact of places on people and their performance. Dr. Edelstein also directs the Perkins + Will Gadget Lab, with current areas of focus on acoustics and circadian rhythms. Eve’s professional service includes co-founding the Clinicians for Design group, hosted at the Royal College of Physicians and EU Healthcare Design Congress; directing the DesignHealth Co-Laboratory, part of the AIA Design + Health Research Consortium that explores the impact of design at environmental, urban and architectural scales; is a board member of the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture and the International Academy of Design and Health; and educational supervision and lectures of neuro-architecture students at University of Washington, Seattle, DAAP at University of Cincinnati, and the NewSchool of Architecture and Design. Dr. Edelstein holds a doctorate in neuroscience (University College London), a professional master in architecture, and a degree in anthropology (University California, Berkeley). Eve developed the first series of courses in Neuro-Architecture leading to Certificate and Master Programs at the NewSchool of Architecture & Design along with the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture. Eve’s peer-reviewed publications and international keynote presentations describe the application of research in brain-based design principles.
