OU Architecture Professor Co-Presents “Culture of Creation” During International Congress on Ambiances

University of Oklahoma assistant professor of Architecture Tiziana Proietti recently co-presented “Culture of Creation: The atmosphere of objects” with Satyendra Pakhalé during the 4th International Congress on Ambiances, hosted by the University of California, Santa Barbara.

About the Presentation

As human beings we are constantly immersed in different atmospheres and spontaneously associate them with space. We propose here to focus on atmospheres of objects. In over more than two decades of experience with Satyendra Pakhalé Associates, we have developed a research program complementary to studio practice. While designing objects we investigate their related atmospheres and cultivate a deep understanding of human perception and sensoriality referring to multiple sources. With the intention to empower the ability of objects to contribute to the broadest necessities of human – social and sensorial – being, here we focus attention on the invisible aura that surrounds objects and evokes specific feelings. We call this holistic practice as ‘Culture of Creation’.
