Seeing, hearing, experiencing, tasting architecture... II
“Felt experiences” have become key components of our understanding of the world in the digital age, which could explain the increase in research on the diversity of the ambiences experienced in built environments.
These approaches, which sometimes give privileged access to worldviews or lead to design modes that are more attentive to the experience of users, shed new light on previously neglected elements that more accurately reflect the multiple relationships between humans and the built environment.
This workshop welcomes proposals that address concrete cases as well as theoretical, epistemological, methodological, or pedagogical reflections, focusing on sensitive experience or architectural ambiences, and potentially leading to a more refined, cross-cutting understanding of Canadian urban environments, particularly with respect to the issues raised by heritage. Considered as objects of urbanity, material productions thus testify to the renewal of collective (and individual) relationships to spaces. Architecture is experienced on a daily basis, and this session intends to reflect how diverse individuals co-construct their identities in and through these places.
