'As a work of art or design that is created by an artist specifically to be sited in a public space,' (The Newport News Public Art Foundation) monuments, memorials and architectural ornamentation are all valid examples. In 1941, architectural historian Sigfried Giedion discussed evolving notions of space in his seminal book Space, Time and Architecture. And theories of spatium, locus, platea and phenomenology. Such an analysis will employ phenomenological theories about the production and experience of architectural space. (2004), Open: New Designs for Public Space, Princeton Architectural Press; Holl, S. It is design-space that temporally re-calibrates its relationship with the outside world, repeatedly and through time, either by actively transforming its physical and conceptual boundaries, or through translating its phenomenological perception by the user. The production of space is marked with its own phenomenology. These two intertwined concepts raise questions of identity, perception and materiality. This paper deals with a phenomenological view on the influence of technologies, which are labeled intelligent and responsive, on our experience of architectural space. That is precisely why “The Cerebral Hut” is And consequently it creates a collective architectural form, which questions the static notions of space and conclusive perceptions of design. We want to begin by clarifying the terms “space” and “place”. Notions and constructs of space and place define the environment we live in. (2006), Exhibition Design, Laurence King, London; Gastil, W., Ryan, Z. Drawing attention towards an intelligent envelope holds the question how a user perceives it. What is more important in a library than anything else - than everything else - is the fact that it exists. Questions of Perception: Phenomenology of Architecture presents three essays, each by different authors, one philosopher and two practicing architects, who argue for the sanctity of phenomenology in varying degrees. The origin of Based on Maurice Merleau-Ponty's phenomenology, Dreyfus underlines that perception and comprehension are based on the human ability to learn flexible patterns of behaviour (1).
