Hapticity and time: notes on fragile architecture.

Brain modeling of noun representations in sighted and blind individuals. Since then, various important contributions have emerged from both fields Eberhard, ; Mallgrave, ; Robinson and Pallasmaa, Visual information plays a crucial role in shaping the manner in which we represent and interact with the world around us.

Abstract In the last decades, the rapid growth of functional brain imaging methodologies allowed cognitive neuroscience to address open questions in philosophy and social sciences. Because the theorists of hapticity supported their idea of a multimodal sensing in the architectural experience by relying on the neuroscientific evidence that visual and non-visual information is equally processed tume represented in the human brain, design decisions can truly integrate such knowledge to enhance architectural experience embracing the whole of the different sensory modalities.

All authors listed, have made substantial, direct and intellectual contribution to the work, and approved it for publication. Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer.

Tactile stimulation and consumer response.

Please log in to set a read status. Actually, the dialectics between the notions of hapticity and supramodality that we have described in this essay is a clear example of the weaknesses and potential strength of sharing theoretical models and terms.


Congenital blindness affects diencephalic but not mesencephalic structures in the human brain. Spatial Imagery relies on a sensory independent, though sensory sensitive, functional organization within the parietal cortex: Complexity, Cognition and the City.

To set a reading intention, click through to any list item, and look for the panel on the left hand side:. Follow the University on. Touch is a key element in communicating emotions and intimacy, maintaining and reinforcing social bonds Suvilehto et al.

Architecture and the Senses. Here’s an example of what they look like:.

This comparison and connection between these two different approaches may lead to novel observations in regard to people—environment relationships, and even provide empirical foundations for a renewed evidence-based design theory. Haptlcity, architects rely almost solely on pictures and drawings in architectural magazines or books to establish their personal aesthetics and design method Wastiels et al.

No infatuation for neuroscience will bring beneficial change to the architectural field if even eminent theorists still rely on verbal descriptions and speculations. Social science and neuroscience beyond interdisciplinarity: In the last decades, the rapid growth of functional brain imaging methodologies allowed cognitive neuroscience to address open questions in philosophy and social sciences. Springer Berlin Heidelberg;25— New light from the dark: Therefore, according to this perspective, distinct elements of form and space in architectural perception may be processed and represented in highly specialized brain regions in a sensory modality-independent manner.

On the contrary, if a paradigm shift awaits architecture, it cannot rely on a turn to neuroscience alone: In particular, although vision offers distinctive and unique pieces of information e.

Furthermore, functional neuroanatomy and psychophysiology demonstrated a perceptual and cognitive tiem of vision over other sensory modalities Sereno et al.


However, we must bear anv mind that when dealing with the scientific method that characterizes life sciences, as suggested by Mallgravearchitects must be prepared to address unexpected and possibly unwelcome empirical realities. Neural codes of architectural styles.

“MATTER, HAPTICITY AND TIME” Juhani Pallasmaa by Ana Aldecoa on Prezi

Yet, when promoting any dialog among disciplines, caution must be urged against certain conceptual ambiguities, as we shall see in this commentary. Since then, design studies and life sciences have been continuously inspiring each other, but only recently have they started to truly share interdisciplinary theoretical and methodological perspectives. This article was submitted to Cognitive Science, a section of the journal Frontiers in Psychology. Published online Jun 9.

In scientific investigation, more accurate conceptual and linguistic choices should be made, in order to provide a common ground for the involved disciplines: Misconceptions about the Golden Ratio. In fact, for sighted people, vision is so pervasive that they find it hard to imagine a world that does not reach them through their eyes. So, although hapticity suggests a primacy of touch that evidence from neuroscience does.

For instance, a recent study showed that symmetry is represented in the lateral occipital cortex in a supramodal fashion Bauer et al. In recent years, novel methodologies to explore the neurobiological bases of mind and behavior have inspired the fields of architecture e. Motion, emotion and empathy in esthetic experience.
