title Embodied Emotions: A Phenomenological Approach to Computation to Explore Empathy Through Architecture
source Achten, Henri; Pavlicek, Jiri; Hulin, Jaroslav; Matejovska, Dana (eds.), Digital Physicality - Proceedings of the 30th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2 / ISBN 978-9-4912070-3-7, Czech Technical University in Prague, Faculty of Architecture (Czech Republic) 12-14 September 2012, pp. 599-604
summary In this paper we present a PhD research that aims to develop a design methodology that, using computational tools can generate livable spaces that allow the design of user centered architecture. We propose that a “corporeal architecture” might be able to work in a prophylactic or therapeutic way that can face some adversities generated by the contemporary impact of technology in the human body. We are using motion as the basis the tool to simulate the body’s motion as a spatial generator. We hope to understand how an embodied space, generated by motions that refl ect emotions, can create a sense of attunement with its dwellers. We also wish to achieve the holistic stimuli of the human body in a naturally immersive environment, with the induction of the body’s motions in space by the physical properties of the architecture.
