This essay addresses the relationship between space and memory in relation to autism and other kinds of neurodiversity. Those with autism frequently find it difficult to remember sequences of actions to carry out during the day or to complete a task. In contrast, they often have an excellent visual memory. A clear vision, especially from the front, of places and objects can support an autonomous, independent life. We are going to propose some examples of designs for “sensitive” spaces and furnishings developed with this in mind within the SENSHome Project funded by the European Union

Abstract

This essay addresses the relationship between space and memory in relation to autism and other kinds of neurodiversity. Those with autism frequently find it difficult to remember sequences of actions to carry out during the day or to complete a task. In contrast, they often have an excellent visual memory. A clear vision, especially from the front, of places and objects can support an autonomous, independent life. We are going to propose some examples of designs for “sensitive” spaces and furnishings developed with this in mind within the SENSHome Project funded by the European Union
