Crafting Architectural Experiences: Exploring Memory Places
This article discusses the importance of imaginative perception in architecture and the relationships between quality of space and human experiences. It is grounded in theoretical explorations and extensive literature reviews. It also presents four specific case studies, which discuss design strategies, spatial qualities, and human experiences of these buildings. All four projects demonstrate that the ways in which architects perceive spatial qualities lead them into experimental explorations, all of which aid in the creation of a meaningful articulation of spaces and forms. It concludes with suggestions for translating ideas into the creation of impressive architectural spaces.
