Experiential Architecture, Essay Competition

Experiential Architecture, Architectural Essay Competition 2021


Architecture is more than just a building; it is capable of serving deeper functions. We are surrounded by Architecture around us, we walk through it, we live in it, and we are a part of it.

It should not just focus on the aesthetics but also on a complete experience. A connection between space and human beings is rooted in architecture. Architecture influences our behavior and also our senses.  The competition, ‘Experiential Architecture’ is looking for essay submissions on the positive impact that architecture has on our lives.


What is your understanding of Experiential Architecture? How can Architecture heighten Human Experience? What is your definition of this space that positively affects human senses? And many more such questions.
