Developing the brief

Memories stored inside the body are translated into signs and forms, matter and light, inside the architectural space by interpreting the neuronal patterns mapped out by the body as it moves around.

These neuronal maps are converted into design guidelines

Sensory-motor
metaphors?

This allows the appropriate sensory-motor metaphors to be selected.

How are neuronal maps converted into design guidelines?

The transition from a sensory-motor metaphor to architecture, so that an embodied simulation can be generated, may be broken down into four stages:

A: Study of the alterations to the human body’s receptors. B. Identifying the architectural features associated with the receptors

Embodied
simulation?

example:

A place in which to grow:
