Abstract [en]

Suspended Spaces is an exploration of new territories for architecture practice, using an experiential approach in creating a tool for spatial awareness. The first part of the research brakes down the experiencescape by exploring the space of the sensorial, concepts on time behavior and the role that language plays in objectifying our experienced worlds. Through my experiments, I look at the ineffable properties of architectural experience while describing a practice that doesn’t see the building as the soul expression, and where purpose is not just about learned procedures. The second part of the research analyses the potential of critical play in exposing aspects of spatial experience that otherwise remain imperceptible in day-to-day life. Through experience prototypes and system design, I describe the process of creating an experimental board game that would enable players to construct spatial narratives using senses, emotions and irregular timelines. Architecture becomes nothing less than a way to reimagine how we could inhabit the world.
