“On Atmospheres: Spaces of Embodiment”

Harvard Graduate School of Design, February 4th-5th, 2016
Piper Auditorium, Gund Hall, 48 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA

ON ATMOSPHERES: Spaces of Embodiment aims to press for a ”meteorological turn” in design—a shift that recognizes the role of atmosphere and atmospherics as crucial subjects in the design of the contemporary city, and thus repositions the importance of aesthetics and sensation as physiological responses that mediate between the body and the built environment. Acknowledging the increasingly broad and specialized inquiry from a range of disciplines in the context of measured and sensed meteorological conditions, the symposium gathers a series of internationally prominent philosophers, artists, urbanists, architects, scholars, landscape architects, and landscape historians to reflect upon sensory well-being and the conditions of embodiment in the city. Organized By Silvia Benedito MAUD ’04, Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture, Harvard GSD, with the support of the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, the Harvard University Committee on the Arts (HUCA), and the Rouse Visiting Artist Program and Daniel Urban Kiley Fund at Harvard GSD.
