Spatial sensations: An architectural proposition

By Jason T. Young

Abstract

Reading architecture through experiencing spaces is, perhaps, the richest way in which architecture touches our lives. Embedded within the act of producing architecture are suppressed idiosyncrasies and subjective, a-rational logic structures. These structures are suppressed by the traditional means of establishing criticality within a rigorous frame of historicity. By acknowledging both the suppression and the mechanism through which the suppression operates, a supplement to traditional practices and theories of space making can be proposed which, by elevating the subjective events of production, challenges the traditional discursive structure of producing space and can lead one to propose spaces that enrich the depth spatial experience
