Urban spa capturing the sensual through the filmic /

by Chevchek, Brian K.

Abstract (Summary)
iv Architects and film directors share in the mental task of structuring our being in the world and articulating the surface between ourselves and the world. This structuring and articulation occurs through a chiasmatic binding of the external world of the body and the inner world of the mind. It is through the sensual qualities of architecture that perception is opened and awareness of ones existence in space occurs. This thesis investigates how the poetic images in film can inform and assist the production of an architecture that captures the experiences and encounters of the sensual.
