Maurice Nio - Suprasensitivity In Architecture
|Publisher||Uitgeverij Duizend & Een|
Beyond the vagaries of taste and subjectivity, the pure and primary awareness of the space itself, lies the notion of the supra-sensitive. This is the realm where designers must strike a chord by evoking a chain reaction of animated materials. Becoming conscious of the supra-sensitive world is one thing; being willing to work with and influence it is another. Rotterdam-based architect Maurice Nio explores supra-sensitivity in architecture in this book, describing how animating matter means manipulating its frequency – a vibration that triggers another vibration. The result is an experience that will inevitably evoke an emotional response in any who are subjected to it.
