Architecture of Embodiment is a research environment in which architecture is addressed from an enactivist perspective. The term architecture is understood here as the built environment in its most basic terms: structure, form, and materiality. The main questions of this research environment refer directly to one of the core enactivist theses—“living is sense-making” (Varela, 1991): Can architecture be understood as a condition of the emergence of sense? If so, how does architecture condition the emergence of sense? The realization of this research environment is thought of as mapping a territory—the architecture of embodiment—that is not given but emerges out of the acts of mapping it.

Architecture of Embodiment is funded by the Einstein Foundation and hosted by the Zentralinstitut für Weiterbildung and the Institut für Geschichte und Theorie der Gestaltung at the Berlin University of the Arts.
