The Emotional Power of Space - Jacques Herzog, Tatiana Bilbao with Ila Bêka & Louise Lemoine
Visual artists Bêka & Lemoine invite architects Jacques Herzog, winner of the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2001, and Tatiana Bilbao, AW Architect of the Year 2022, to share their own way of sensing space.
How and why do emotions arise in our relationship with space? What defines what we feel? How does space, in its materiality, affect our psychological state? And could we develop more awareness and subtle attention towards the sensorial and emotional impact that architecture is able to provoke? The talk will explore the intuitive, emotional and irrational forces at play in our relationship to space.
The talk is organized on the occasion of the release of the book "The Emotional Power of Space" by Ila Bêka & Louise Lemoine (due out in May 2023).
