Open Lecture :: Auxiliadora Gálvez Pérez :: Atmospheric Perceptual Awareness

  • Open Lecture Series 2013/2014
  • Norbert Singer Lecture Theatre / M055
  • Mansion Site, Avery Hill Campus
  • Wednesday 5th March; 6PM


The lecture will focus on atmospheric perceptive awareness as an attitude to expand the way we read, transform and interact with our reality. This attitude will catalyse a spontaneous connection with our environment, with others and with ourselves, which is related to environmental, social and mental or imaginative aspects respectively. A group of aspects that is able to configure an ecological attitude. According to this, we will go through a collection of different landscape and open space or architectural projects developed by our office – Gálvez+Wieczorek Architecture – in relation to four blocks: The direct experience and the definition of an atmospheric perceptive awareness; the expansion of the quotidian experience through a somatic connection with the environment; the urban obsolescence as an opportunity to re-read and re-build reality; and tools ready to be used in the development of implementations and new synergies.

This model took 20 hours to print on the Dimension Elite ABS printer,  It is about 180mm long x 40 mm high and cost £30.
