  • from phenomenology to sensation
    new haven CONNECTICUT

    brennan BUCK: Contemporary interest in the architectural interior can be tied to changes in the way we understand the psychic interior. The popularization of and recent developments in contemporary neuroscience have renewed the importance of subjectivity for architecture. Research by Antonio Damasio, among others, has shown that the presence and emotional state of the body-in-space directly affects cognitive processing. Beyond the cliché of emotions clouding logical thought, ideas have an emotional component that plays a direct role in deduction and decision making. Within architecture, these discoveries suggest a renewed consideration of bodily experience, one that may underlie the recent disciplinary interest in sensation and affect and raise the specter of a return to phenomenology.
