Title Sensory experience in space: an analysis of phenomenology and wineries
Year graduated 2016
Date 2016-04
Description Architects commonly design spaces for primary human needs based on design necessities, but dwelling is much more than just being sheltered; it is a subjective human experience. What you see, hear, touch, smell, or even taste can create a certain impression of a space. Therefore, the perceptions of those experiencing the space should be considered when designing that built space. This is especially important with respect wineries not only because wine is a significant part of human culture and history, but also because sensory experience in both smell and taste are essential components of wine appreciation. In this thesis, I aim to emphasize the importance of sensory experience in different architectural spaces and how it has and should influence architectural design in general. To prove my points, I will identify three case studies of wineries in Napa Valley, California which emphasize and explore the principal aspects of sensory experience. I aim to further explore this thesis by proposing a design for a winery in Park City which showcases this experience of space through the senses.
