Meeting Notes


Exploring the concept of cognitive maps and identifying the potential of
landmarks as primary elements for way-finding tools. The first half of the
talk will consist of a hands-on exercise relating to cognitive maps and the
second half will be a presentation of the pre-thesis work that was done at
University at Buffalo as part of my Masters of Science in Architecture

Title of my research project is designing way-finding tool for people with
cognitive difficulties. It explores the hypothesis that creating custom
maps for an individual based on their preferences for landmarks can lead to
making a way-finding tool more user-friendly and can encourage
environmental learning for people with mild to moderate dementia or TBI.
Scope of the tool is limited to neighborhoods with a focus on pedestrian
