Event description

Description

Science is now informing us that our perceptual engagement with the environment, including the built environment, is enacted at the most basic level as a multisensory “whole-organism experience.” Implicit in this view is the idea that architectural design is more than a symbolic or conceptual language—it is a process by which minds, bodies, built environments, and cultures interact with each other in a developmental process on multiple levels over the course of generations. This symposium will explore the inevitable shift of perspective from the “object” of design to the “experience” of those inhabiting the built forms, and consider the implications for the practice of architecture.
