Natalia Olszewska

Natalia is a researcher and practitioner in neuroscience applied to architecture. She gained her experience working for Hume, an avant-garde, science-informed architecture and urban design studio created by Itai Palti. 

Natalia consulted on design projects for Landsec, HKS, EDGE, the Association of Children’s Museums, Google, as well as for numerous individual clients. She works between disciplines and aims to create insights that can change our architectural and urban environment and make it more people centered. She is passionate about individual wellbeing in its various forms—i.e., social, psychological, cognitive, health, etc.—and how it can be affected by architecture, her other passion. 

She is a fellow at The Centre for Conscious Design, where she is responsible for the Centre’s domain of ‘Neuroscience for Architecture.’ She organized the Conscious Warsaw Webinar and co-authored the “Venetian Letter” manifesto. Her articles were published in the Journal of Science Informed Design, the 2020 Conscious Cities Anthology and Intertwining

Natalia is a co-founder of Impronta, a neuroscience consultancy for architecture. 

Natalia has unique educational training in medicine (Jagiellonian University & Tor Vergata), neuroscience (UCL, ENS, Sorbonne), and neuroscience applied to architectural design (Università IUAV). She practiced medicine for over 10 years. Natalia presented her NAAD master’s degree thesis during the 2018 Biennale of Architecture in Venice.
