BACHELOR OF SCIENCE (HONOURS) IN ARCHITECTURE
THERIES OF ARCHITECTURE & URBANISM (ARC/61303/ARC2224)
SYNOPSIS: REACTION PAPER (MARCH 2017) [10 MARKS]
NAME: RYAN KERRY JEE JIN YIING ID: 0318715
LECTURER: MR NICHOLAS NG TUTORIAL TIME: 10AM-1PM
SYNOPSIS NO: 2 READER TITLE: THE GEOMETRY OF FEELING
AUTHOR: JUHANI PALLASMAA
In his book ‘The Geometry of Feeling’, the author, Juhani Pallasmaa highlights how modern
architecture fails to evoke the feeling that it should and how architecture should not be restricted by a
formalized manner just in order to meet stringent criteria of the existing reality. Architecture has always
been a form of expression with purity and sensitivity which emphasizes on experiential quality rather
than the value of form. The author highlights the aspect of phenomenology analysis and how it gives
rise to the experience of an individual within a building which is not affected solely by architectural
form.
I strongly agree to the author’s point stating that “if a building does not fulfill the basic condition
formulated for it phenomenologically as a symbol of human existence it is unable to influence the
emotional feelings”. It is observable that modern expression of architecture has failed to celebrate wild
thoughts and imagination which curbs off the provocation of soulful expressions of the human kind.
This is contradicting to the genesis of architecture which intended the opposite of the recent
occurrence in architecture. The roots of architecture are not achieved with the sole reliance on forms
but are also influenced by triggering emotions from one’s past memories.
Imagining a shabby old farmhouse in the middle of a broad golden-colored prairie landscape, the
rustic hays that made up the roofs, the light piercing from the clerestories above merely reaching into
the farmhouse, the coziness, enclosure and warmth within the narrow rooms, the sense of solitude
and tranquility evoked from the spaces within. The mind is not triggered and solely influenced by how
the farmhouse actually looked but the sensory and visual attachment it triggers upon oneself. Despite
walking into a building that looks entirely different, one’s emotion may also be triggered similarly by
the most unintended corners with similar propositions as the emotions one once had or experienced.
One that interacts the users along with their sense of consciousness and sensory experiences is
of a successful architecture. Architecture should not be as mild as what one perceived from the
surface, but rather dynamic yet expressive as it pursues the interaction between memory and reality
of an individual. Hence, architecture without soul and sensual attachment which are only bound by
form, are said to have fail to proclaim its existence.
