“Intertwining – Unfolding art and science” is an international, interdisciplinary journal dedicated to understanding the experience and making of architecture. It includes the voices of science alongside those of the arts – as both ways of knowing are critical to the multidimensional nature of our inquiry. It is focused on the relationship between The human sciences and the architectural design.
“We want to move beyond thinking of architecture as an object. Architecture is not separate from us-it is not something to be judged merely by its formal properties, its satisfaction of programmatic concerns or its performance in terms of technical parameters. We are not dismissing the importance of these factors but wish to enrich them, to understand and articulate how architecture can capture and express unseen layers of meaning and purpose.
We want to think of architecture as a verb, a mover, a shaper, an active agent in human flourishing. In order to appreciate the potential power of architecture we want to explore the experience of architecture, and the intimately related experience of making architecture.
Turning our attention to experience requires that we listen to and consider knowledge from a full array of disciplines. Experience is multi-dimensional, multi-directional, irreducible.
Experience always supercedes, flows over any boundary that attempts to circumscribe it.” quoted Alessandro Gattara, who attend the presentation together with the other editors Sarah Robinson and Davide Ruzzon, who developed for Lombardini22 TUNED, a tool focused on the application of Neurosciences to Architecture.
