This issue of the Journal of Somaesthetics is dedicated to the embodied and aesthetic potentials of architectural and spatial designs. We invite articles and cases that investigate how “the soma is the crucial medium through which architecture is experienced and created” (Shusterman: 2009, p.290).
How should we approach the world of architecture through the principles of the living sentient body? How do we create a fertile dialog between practical design work and embodied philosophies, such as somaesthetics, pragmatism, or phenomenology? Concretely, how do we design houses, public spaces, interiors, soundscapes, landscapes, augmented realities, virtual spaces, or art installations from the somaesthetic point of view?
