Sensorial Space Design

Sensorial perception (9)

Learn how to perceive space using different senses


What you’ll learn: This course aims to establish the inherent principles that structure space from a sensorial point of view. Based on notions of the physiology of the senses, psychology of space, and mindfulness, we will explore our ability to develop an attitude of attention and vigilance to our presence in space. Students will explore the sensory perception of space based on their personal experience throughout the corporal senses. The objective is to examine how we interact with our built and natural environment to integrate these dimensions into the creative process of future projects.

Where you’ll visit: Station F, La Felicita, La Recyclerie, the perfumery Guerlain on the Champs Elysées, Parc de la Villette, Philharmonie, Villa Savoye, ORA Restaurant

Course highlight: A series of sensorial exercises will help to affine the awareness of our sense perception (touch, smell, hearing, sight, taste, thermoception, etc.), our emotions (curiosity, fear, boredom, joy, etc.), the details of our environment (materials, light, proportions, colors, sound, etc.) and the way it influences us.

Prerequisites: This course is open to all profiles curious about the sensorial perception of space. Firstly the department of interior design, but also the department of fashion or fine arts. All ages and professional backgrounds are welcome.
