Marta Delgado is an MS student in Building Science at UC Berkeley. She received a degree in Architecture in Barcelona (UIC) after a stay in the University ETH Zurich to study cognition in architecture. She has always been interested in the influence that built environments have on human mind, behavior and personal identity. In 2015, she founded a digital outreach platform about the impact of architecture on human life, bringing together agents and researchers in architecture, somatics and science from Spain. Her thesis project was nominated to the Youth Talent Architecture Award from the Mies Van Der Rohe Foundation and selected for the Catalan Pavilion at the 2018 Biennale di Venezia. She continued her graduate studies in Health and Harmony of the Habitat in Barcelona. Currently, she is at UC Berkeley granted with the La Caixa Fellowship to develop research on neuroscience and architecture. Her objectives are to analyze the neurobiological nature involved in the perception and human relationship with the environment, and to promote architectural practices that can improve human health and well-being.
