This course is based on Juhani Pallasmaa's presentation at Natural Artifice, the 2011 National Architecture Conference.
Juhani Pallasmaa sees the task of architecture as 'the defence of the authenticity of human experience'. He asserts the importance of a ‘primary’ human condition which predates any notions of nature or artifice. Pallasmaa’s The Eyes of the Skin calls for a renewed engagement with sensory encounters which surpass the merely ocular. 'Beyond architecture,' writes Pallasmaa, 'our culture at large seems to drift towards a distancing, a kind of chilling, de-sensualization and de-eroticization of the human relation to reality.' Architecture increasingly predicated on purely visual stimuli leads us further and further away from bodily experience.

Juhani Pallasmaa sees the task of architecture as 'the defence of the authenticity of human experience'. He asserts the importance of a ‘primary’ human condition which predates any notions of nature or artifice. His is a world of deep and profound observations and he has been a prolific writer as evidenced by the numerous and essential texts that have influenced the thinking of some of the greatest architects in the world. Architecture cannot be seen, Pallasmaa will argue, it must be lived.
