How to Use Light to Harness Architectural Design Poetics

By

Maria Lorena Lehman

|

Founder — Sensing Architecture ® Academy

As an architectural designer, how you think about light can make all the difference in your design’s success. For example, do you work with architectural light as more of a scientist or an artist? This distinction can help you become better at doing both. And when you design environmental light as both a scientist and an artist, your designs will be more fully enjoyed by occupants as they experience the poetics of your built vision.

The Critical Role of Architecture in Propelling Human Potential

By

Maria Lorena Lehman

|

Founder — Sensing Architecture ® Academy

When it comes to making great architecture, there are two critical elements: creative vision and multi-sensory design. As an architect, the more you work to improve each element, the greater the gains you will find within your resulting design outcome. But what is that outcome all about? Is it simply about landing the next big client? Or creating environments occupants love? What is behind these fantastic results? And what sort of long-term impact is your designed environment making?

How Creative Vision Teaches You to Become a Better Architect

By

Maria Lorena Lehman

|

Founder — Sensing Architecture ® Academy

As an architect, it is important for you to ask yourself if the way your design gets constructed and used is the way you originally envisioned when starting the design process. Of course, as a designer it may be impossible to foresee every single possible use that your design has as different people engage with it every day. Nevertheless, as you are forming your vision, it will help you to try.
