The complex perception of space: sensory immersion in architecture
The phenomenology of architecture is the philosophical study of spaces as they appear in experience; it’s the study of the importance of human perception, intuition and phenomenal experience in the built space.
The proposal of this project is to include all the senses to find an architecture that allows the reconstruction of the experience, where occupants are not mere spectators, but participants in their own environment.
This project seeks to connect the built space with nature, this dialectic between the inside and the outside arises to create an integrated experience with the environment.
Creating an architecture based on thought has a therapeutic consequence. Therefore, the building will be based in art therapy. Emotional and existential surroundings can allow us to construct spaces where creative experiences, healing emotions and making take place. The idea that each sense will have a different level of intimacy was utilised to create an emotional journey through the spaces, thus creating stimulating environments.
Understanding the essence of each space through sensory design (textures, materials, light, shadows, perspective) will create a memorable encounter with the environment. Hence, touching the ultimate poetic depth of the space.
