The Synthesis of Balance: Conscious Design Based on the Lived Experience
More InformationShow full item record
Architecture become harmonious when it is experienced as a triad of the lived reality, the perceived experience, and the impact it has on the memory of the soul. The physical reality of the built environment can highly influence the subjective experience of a space. However, it is not solely dependent on it. Subdividing architecture into a trinity of the physical space, the mental space, and the spiritual place is what encourages a harmonious balance. This intentional design is a practice of architectural discovery as it seeks to create a facilitator for balance between the built environment and the human user experience. The architectural design becomes the mediator and facilitator to encourage mind, body, soul rebalanced.
