Experience of Space/Time in Tadao Ando and Carlo Scarpa’s Narrative Architecture: The Embodied-enactive View

Sep 23, 2016

The researchers note that the architecture by Tadao Ando and Carlo Scarpa, like the Water Temple and Brion Cemetery, invoke in the visitor intense emotional and memorable experiences. By embracing the embodied-enactive perspective, they examine the relationship between the experienced passage of time and narrative spatial configurations with two aims in mind: first, to shed light on underlying bodily and emotional mechanisms, and second, to highlight the significance of the subjective time component in understanding how people navigate in architectural environments.
