Living inside the architecture–Multi-sensory experience and Conversation-

Every time we experience an architectural space, we unconsciously use all of our senses. Of course we see the beauty of the detail, but we also sense the flow of the air, light from the windows, resonant sounds from the ceiling, etc.
In this session, we will start with a conversation on ‘Finger Strolling through the Museum’ in the Welcome Room. We’ll take an overview of the museum building and make a plan to explore the museum at night, without other visitors. While we explore the galleries and backyard, we will carefully listen to external sounds, feel the light with closed eyes, imagine the smell of the dinner party. The facilitator will not conduct a ‘guided tour’ filled with historical or technical information, but she will encourage you to imagine how it was 80 years ago and to share your ideas. This is a special tour to help you gain familiarity with the building and the ability to broaden your enjoyment of any architecture.
