educational movement project for architects, designers
and students about the relationship between body, movement
'Moved By Space' is a collaboration project between dancer
Bettina Neuhaus, architect Daniëlle Freriks and photographer
Ellen v.d. Kooij. This educational project is inspired
by the vivid interrelationship between the moveable body
and different architectural spaces. It examines how a
more physical experience of these spaces changes the way
of developing architectural concepts.
The project explores the human body with its three-dimensionality,
its kinesphere (personal space) and its perception of
the identity of an outer space. This space is defined
by aspects such as scale, texture, layers and borders.
Here the process focuses on experiencing a space not only
by the visual sense but also by other senses. Based on
that participants experience the dynamic relationship
between their body, their movement and the given space.
The physical experience of this workshop forms the starting
point for an individual translation into a form study
that each participant will realize.
Concept and realization: Bettina Neuhaus, Daniëlle
Freriks, Ellen v.d. Kooij
A booklet in Dutch with photo illustrations and a detailed
