Architecture and multisensory. A project of inclusion for the sensory impaired and a new approach of synaesthetic visit in existing architectural sites


Abstract


From the conviction that space must be perceived by all the senses, an experimental degree thesis has been developed - at the end of the 5 years of study of Architecture at the Sapienza University in Rome - which analyzes and re-proposes the non-visual perception inherent in the human being but which, in today's society, is increasingly buried by the visual perception that instead grows in proportion to the spread of new technologies which aim to interact almost exclusively with the visual apparatus. 


Keywords
