Architecture is a bodily activity. As we participate in the built environment, sight, hearing, kinesthesia, balance and movement all come into play. Sight, however, is primary, linking the mind of the viewer with the exterior world through the information-rich medium of light.

This two-day workshop will attune the senses to light's nuanced behavior. The development of acuity for light will expand our awareness of the physical and psychological subtleties of the built environment. Sensory intelligence will bridge insight and exterior form, integrating artistic process and architectural practice.
