On Meaning and Place / Sally Faulder


Nine written sketches on A4 paper

This series of written sketches is part of a doctoral research project. They have been produced at the point where you begin to test and explore ideas (as you would through sketching in design).

Some are responses to the Royal Academy’s ‘Sensing Spaces: Architecture Reimagined’ exhibition, as a study into the poetic and experiential aspects of architecture; some are responses to selected works of Álvaro Siza; some are more focused on concepts.

They all investigate the processes of understanding and meaning created through our interaction with place as it exists as part of culture and tradition.
