Another link for the link library - to the Architecture of Embodiment research environment from Berlin, Germany.

The concept of the environment is as follows.

Architecture of Embodiment is a research environment in which architecture is addressed from an enactivist perspective. The term architecture is understood here as the built environment in its most basic terms: structure, form, and materiality.
The term enactivism refers to the approach initially formulated in 1991 by Francisco Varela, Evan Thompson, and Eleanor Rosch in the framework of embodied cognition theories, extensively described by Evan Thompson in 2007, and further developed by other theorists such as Shaun Gallagher, Ezequiel Di Paolo, Thomas Fuchs, or Dan Zahavi.
The main questions of this research environment refer directly to one of the core enactivist theses—“living is sense-making” (Varela, 1991): Can architecture be understood as a condition of the emergence of sense? If so, how does architecture condition the emergence of sense?
In accordance with the delimitation of architecture to its most basic components, the emergence of sense will be researched here in attendance to its most primary processes: those enabled by the immediate, sensuous, and pre-thetic interaction between human bodies and their built environment. Consequently, the domain in which the research is primarily developed is aesthetic experience, and aesthetic practices are exhaustively and systematically integrated into its research methodology.

The most full sections on the site are Research cells, Team, and Links.
