Book chapter: Corporeality
The chapter goes through different body conceptions trying to see how these ideas are a strong influence in the architectonical space. The considerations of the body-space relationships are double: abstract ones but also physical and related to actions. After some suggestive concepts like the “android body” of Toyo Ito, the “body in free movement” of Kazuyo Sejima or the idea of the “body as moving light (energy) within a bottomless background” of Hiroshi Nakao, the research follows the interesting material that a discipline which deals with the body is able to give us. We talk about dance and choreography, specifically taking as an example the work of Merce Cunningham in relation to spatial forms associated to domestic space, to dwelling.
