Designing with Dance: The Link between Architecture and Dance

Sep 20, 2012

This research explores the effects of dance on the human cognition and physical state and applies it to create a neuromorphic architecture that benefits the user’s wellbeing. This experiment showcases how the aesthetic experiences of dance can be translated into a formal expression of architecture. From a visual standpoint, the defining appearance of the movements can be realized in the architecture’s form. However, further investigation is required to understand the audience’s reactions towards watching dance in relation to experiencing a prototype of neuromorphic space derived from movements.
