Spatial Expeditions

Space is experienced not only visually, but with all the senses. Despite this, the design and reception of architecture, often barely take haptic, acoustic and osmic perceptions into account. Consequently in the architectural discipline there is no continuos discourse on the topic of spatial perception. GAM.13 Spatial Expeditions seeks to fill this gap. The method of the expedition enables an experimental approach and provides the opportunity to gain new insights and perspectives with regard to built space. It explores perceptual techniques frpm the fields of architecture, visual arts, music, dance and other related disciplines. GAM.13 therefore represents an expedition into experimental architecture and the unexplored aspects of built space.

The issue includes contributions by, among others, Sam Auinger, Irmgard Frank, Malcolm McCullough, Philippe Rahm, Karen Van den Berg.
