Space is inherently embodied–to be in space one must physically, three-dimensionally, encounter it. But what would happen if the sensory, affective, embodied human was at the center of spatial design? What would be the role of the senses and how would designers use media to physically evoke this type of spatial experience? These questions developed into my investigation on what I came to call “sensual spaces”. Sensual spaces are the intersection where architecture and art meet human experience. Together these spaces illuminate a trend in art, architecture, and design that aims to create vivid spatial experiences that evoke sensory and affective response within the inhabitant.
