Meredith Banasiak

Growing up with her own sensory challenges in complex environments, Meredith is driven to design environments with fewer challenges. By translating research evidence and scientific knowledge to inform real projects which optimize health, performance and access, she supports a transformational shift in design towards an evidence-based, person centered culture.

Meredith maintains an Advisory Council role with the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture and has published in psychology, medicine, and architectural research journals and books.
