Embodied Architectural Practice and Design Literacy

In: Chiselled Horizons: A Multi-Cultural Approach to Visual Literacy

Architecture and interior design are a manifestation of embodied life experiences, and as such, visual literacy forms the foundation of modern practice. Architects, as any artists, draw their inspiration from the people, places, and cultures in which they have lived or visited. But in practice, architecture and design must transcend art to examine culture, structure, systems, and environmental factors; therefore, architecture and design become art formed within rigorous parameters. As such, an understanding of visual literacy becomes key to exploring design possibilities by offering a lens through which design language and practical parameters alike can be examined. This chapter seeks to explore an educational process of amplified design literacy.
