Movement in Architecture: A Spacial Movement Theory
Mitchell, Lauren Coleen
MetadataShow full item record
As the body moves through space ephemeral lines of movement are created. These lines of movement are influenced by body tendencies. We learn from the body by watching the path and patterning of movement. From the study of the movement of the body, theories of spacial movement were developed. The goal of my project is to draw from spacial movement theory to create an architectural expression that motivates movement of the body on my site and through my building. The focus of my thesis is the movement theory of Rudolph Laban (1879-1958), a modern dance pioneer and a spacial movement theorist.
