Alex Arteaga: "Architecture of Embodiment” 

If life is understood as a process of sense-making, how does architecture condition this process? Is artistic research necessary to address this subject matter in a non-reductive way? Through his current project, Architecture of Embodiment, Alex Arteaga will address in this lecture the relationships between the built environment and the processes of embodied and situated cognition. He will also present a hybrid research methodology based on henomenological and aesthetic practices.
