You’ve said that these days you “hear” and “feel” architecture, rather than see it. Can you explain what you mean?
Sight makes up about 80 percent of the sensory experience. With it you get a lot of information about the immediate environment you’re in but, if you take it out of the equation it’s not like you have 80 percent less information, your brain just focuses on the other senses. You start to “hear” the space in order to gauge the proportions of it, or you might get some clue as to where you are, based on the materials you can feel underfoot. You might even feel airflow, or the architecture itself, as it closes in around you and then opens up again. In some spaces that feeling can be really profound.
