Global Brain Health Institute, Trinity College Dublin

This is a remarkable initiative between Trinity College Dublin and the University of California, San Francisco. Teams based at both sites along with Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health located in communities around the world work to reduce the scale and impact of dementia through prevention strategies and innovative interventions. Our approach to making new facilities for the Global Brain Health Institute began with the end users, gaining an understanding of the brief, their work and research into dementia and brain health, and developing this building to make a distinctive place to support this.

A circular central space has been created within a set of linked, timber-lined rooms and spaces designed to encourage and facilitate collaboration and innovation. The central space features an interactive ceiling – an innovative piece of lighting design which responds to the behaviour of participant.
