“Only through awareness, presence and action can architectural sensibility and spatial intelligence be unfolded and developed.”
Image of the Vitruvian Man drawn by Leonardo da Vinci.
The interpretation of human body as it is related with our capacity for deception is an elemental understanding. Theoretically formulated most clearly in Vitruvius “Ten Books on Architecture” as a correspondence of measure between the body and architecture, this understanding reappeared as a major dimension of Renaissance art and thought.
Spaces of atmosphere are shaped through a bodily interaction with architecture. The atmosphere is therefore closely linked to a philosophy of phenomenology. Vitruvius noted that since the human body is the measure of architecture, it is also that which determines atmospheric qualities. Within my own proposed space I am re-evaluating the relation of human body and mind in the practice of design and architecture.
My architectural stimuli, includes the works of Tadao Ando, Le Corbusier, Oscar Niemeyer, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, Richard Meier and Alberto Campo Baeza. I am a huge admirer of the Antiquity as well as Renaissance and its genius artists such as Leonardo da Vinci.
