Anatomy and physiology of architectural perception
THE BODY-BRAIN SYSTEM AND THE PHYSIOLOGY OF THE RECEPTORS AND EFFECTORS
During these classes, students will be shown how biological neural networks of multisensorial experiences of space are set:
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 five days of work, students will deal with the paths whereby some of the leading architectural features, such as the dimensions, proportions, shapes, wayfinding, the topology and the natural light and the greenery, affect the human brain-body complex.
HOW ENVIRONMENT AFFECTS MIND AND BODY: RHYTHM, PROXEMICS, MATERIALS, TEXTURES, COLOURS AND SOUND
Through five days work, students will deal with the paths whereby further architectural features, such as geometries, rhythms, materials, textures, colours, acoustic and different furniture affect the human brain-body complex.
