dwelling engages dweller engages dwelling
DaPonte, David Allan
Master of Architecture
There is an inherent relationship between the house and the movement of the human body. We act and react against it. We move around, slide past its walls, stroll across the floor; are connected visually to the landscape through apertures and are sheltered by the roof. Our engagement is anything but exciting. How could the house allow or even promote a physical engagement with the user? Could material help provide these actions. This thesis is an investigation into blurring the boundary between the house, furniture and the engagement of the human body; a dance between the three.
