Experiencing great architectural design provides an opportunity to appreciate the finest of environments. It honors the senses and sparks the imagination. It inspires and enhances awareness.
As Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill states, “spaces that awaken strong emotions are those that are closest to excellence… sensitivity to space is not a faculty that everyone possesses. People have it or they don’t, like with music or poetry.
From an emotional point of view, this sensitivity allows one to understand space… I’m truly overwhelmed by this feeling in the middle of the sea, on the summit of the highest mountains, in the vastness of the desert, but also walking up a flight of stairs made by Michelangelo.”
