Sensing Architecture: A new publication from the Royal Academy of Arts
Sensing Spaces saw seven architects from around the world invited to create one-off installations in the Academy’s Main Galleries and Annenberg Courtyard.


LONDON.- A new collection of essays published by the Royal Academy of Arts provides commentary on the philosophical, psychological, social and economic ideas that shape our experience of architecture.

Sensing Architecture: Essays on the Nature of Architectural Experience derives from a symposium held at the Royal Academy of Arts, London on March 31, 2014 to accompany the exhibition Sensing Spaces: Architecture Reimagined.

Sensing Spaces saw seven architects from around the world invited to create one-off installations in the Academy’s Main Galleries and Annenberg Courtyard. Visitors were encouraged to move through and experience these interventions and the exhibition offered a stark contrast to the usual representation of architecture through drawings, photographs and models.

The exhibition, curated by Kate Goodwin used architectural constructions to "highlight ... the sensation of inhabiting built space" with the premise that "physical explorations of space are central to our understanding of it." "Could such an experience," Goodwin asked, "awaken visitors' sensibilities to the spaces around them, not only within but beyond the gallery walls?"

This collection of essays introduced and edited by Owen Hopkins broadens the context for this question by "exploring how a consideration of the experience of architecture can enrich and develop its practice and analysis, as well as its theory and history." It features four papers on a wide range of subjects, from both researchers and practitioners and is accompanied by an essay from Goodwin, on the thinking behind Sensing Spaces, the curatorial strategy, and the exhibition’s outcomes alongside a series of photographs by Hélène Binet.

This collection is intended neither as a direct continuation of the ideas brought together in Sensing Spaces, nor as counterpoint or critique. Rather, like the symposium, it is conceived to complement the exhibition’s insights and to offer further consideration of the nature of architectural experience.
