Anatomy and physiology of architectural perception
The Body-brain SYSTEM and the physiology of THE RECEPTORS
During these classes, students will be shown how biological neural networks of multisensorial experiences of space are set: in particular, will be explained as all the multiple kinds of receptors interact with the stimulus coming from the external environment. As the brain elaborates and memorises data from the hearing, visual, tactile, smell, proprioceptive and interoceptive systems.
HOW ENVIRONMENT AFFECTS MIND AND BODY: GEOMETRY, LIGHT AND TOPOLOGY
Through a five days work, students will deal with the path which leads to the ways through which some of the leading architectural features, as the geometry, the topology and the natural light, affect the human brain-body complex.
HOW ENVIRONMENT AFFECTS MIND AND BODY: RHYTHM, PROXEMICS, MATERIALS, TEXTURES, COLOURS AND SOUND
Through a five days work, students will deal with the path which leads to the ways through which some architectural features, as rhythm, proxemics, materials, textures, colours and sound affect the human brain-body complex.
