NO SPACE WITHOUT TRAITS. Using Interdisciplinary Perspectives to Explore Spatial Character

#nospacewithouttraits

Space, from the scale of the room to the scale of the city and beyond, is the currency of architecture, urban design and spatial planning. Space also plays a fundamental role in the sciences and humanities, in cultural geography and the arts, with each field using its own terminology.

In order to improve the ability to perceive the character of places, this theme draws from activities in the arts, humanities and sciences to study the characteristics of spatial conditions and their expression.

By learning from the arts, can a discourse on perception be generated, linking space to its political and social dimensions? Can the concepts of cultural geography help depicting the fluid, rather than static, nature of present-day space? Can the methods of design be combined with those from the sciences to reveal characteristics of contemporary spatial experience?
