A TASTE OF ARCHITECTURE – Degustation evening!
Gilles Schneider: Presentation of Master Thesis in the field of Architecture
15.04.23 @ 18.00
We experience most of our environment with our sense of vision. About 90%. This pushes other senses like hearing, touch and smell in the background. Outstanding is, that our sense of taste does not even make it on the list.
In my thesis called ‚A Taste of Architecture‘ I am trying to figure out ways to find a deeper connection with the place we call home. After all, our homes should welcome and comfort us and be our safe space. I want to achieve a stronger connection by putting my sense of smell and taste in the spotlight. I am dismantling my home, layer by layer, in order to get a better understanding of what materials it consists of.
I am making myself a sandwich out of the materials that I can find. I am cooking wood, I am baking plaster, I am tasting brick. I am making architecture edible.
Please join me at the degustation of my home.
