Spacious

Spacious is a practice based research group that gathers around sited experiments. Departing from the hypothesis of the embodied, enactive, extended, embedded and affective approach to cognition, we study the realm of subtle realities that emerges from the reciprocity between organism and (built) environment.

We aim to support the ongoing research in architecture  from the immediacy of the lived, moment to moment, experience. Furthermore, we offer (post)graduate courses, discussion groups and personal guidance in architecture

and creative practice research. Spacious is a nomadic community. Participants are held together by affinity rather than by any structure of membership or institutional hierarchy.

We work by the principle of give-and-take,

you are asked to contribute what you can and take what you need.

Working with Spacious enables you to develop alternative rhythms for your spatial endeavors at the crossroads of architecture and art, academia and life. Projects run over multiple years and are presented across diverse media, methods and milieus.To experiment is not to know in advance and –more often than not–to forget after the event. Therefore  we start without a predefined plan to let our curiosity-driven experimentation emerge in correspondence with the site. For more information you can visit the external webiste
