Catalyst 2014


Architecture as Catalyst 2014:

Sensory Perceptions, considers architecture as a sensory endeavor.

This theme questions how we sense architecture, how we represent or model these perceptions, and how architects can leverage sensory investigations in the design process. As a conceptual link with the School of Architecture Centennial, workshops highlight how fundamental notions of sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch can offer a departure point for an intense and forward-thinking investigation that extends the disciplines of architecture and design into the next century of the school.
