Kinaesthesia, synaesthesia and the Perception of Place

Activity: Talk or presentationTalk or presentation at a workshop, seminar, course or other meeting


The symposium addresses the notion of place, providing tools to sharpen our view for the particular, to identify the places of the metropolitan landscape in their structural, material, dynamic, practical, atmospheric, mnemonic and discursive identities. What makes a place? How do we perceive our surroundings? What are the requirements for the built environment to make us feel at home?

The symposium is organised on the occasion of the book launch of Saskia de Wit’s Hidden Landscapes. The metropolitan garden as a multi-sensory expression of place.
