Umwelten of Artists and Architects
What does the ecosystem of art and architecture look like? What triggers the act of creating? And which role do sensory cues, environmental factors and interdisciplinary exchanges play in this?
With the research project 'Umwelten in Art and Architecture'the authors sought to formulate a response to such questions. An important starting point were the theories of the Baltic biologist Jacob von Uexküll, who in 1934, came up with the concept of the Umwelt as a means to assess man and animal's behaviour, their world of experience and their capacity to act.
