This dataset is an output of the ‘Designing Atmospheres: Theory and Science’ Symposium (ATS), an Interfaces event of the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture (ANFA), sponsored by the EU’s Horizon 2020 MSCA Program — RESONANCES Project, the Perkins Eastman Studio, and the KSTATE APDesign. The symposium was hosted in the College of Architecture, Planning and Design (APDesign), Kansas State University, Manhattan (Kansas, USA), on March 28, 2023. Speakers: Kory Beighle (Kansas State University), Elisabetta Canepa (University of Genoa | Kansas State University), Bob Condia (Kansas State University), Zakaria Djebbara (Aalborg University | TU Berlin), and Harry Francis Mallgrave (Illinois Institute of Technology). Recent advances in science confirm many of the architects’ deep-rooted intuitions, improving knowledge about the perception of space and the meaning of architectural and urban design. The symposium ‘Designing Atmospheres: Theory and Science‘ presented to an audience of students, educators, architects, and scientists a conversation about the experience of design and building, specifically speaking to the significance of atmospheres, affordances, and emotions. This dataset is made of seven files: no. 1 dataset summary (.pdf) no. 1 symposium poster (.pdf) no. 5 videos containing speakers’ presentations (.mp4) Recorded videos of each lecture are also available on the RESONANCES project website ( and its YouTube channel (@resonancesproject5777).
