Les Ambiances au prisme des Somatiques. Dialogue entre théories et pratiques

Olivia Germon

Keywords: Somatics, tonus, affects, embodiment

Our embodied experience is based on a physical and sensual relationship with our environment: we experience, feel, conceive of and imagine architecture through our bodies. Building on recent research in the field of Somatics and personal experience of a somatic method, Feldenkrais, this text tries to examine the notion of Ambiances and Somatics together in both their practical and theoretical dimensions and to develop their potential for the critical analysis of architecture.
