Our Naked Traces
How might memory inform an architectural narrative that generates the feelings of nostalgia through a rhythmic and tangible bodily experience?
Focusing on the idea of the journey through the alpines, this thesis is an exploration of time, memory, rhythm and cycle through the lens of body and culture. The idea of physically experiencing a journey encourages people to self-reflect and emotionally connect back to themselves, whether it be through the surrounding environment or through the feelings of nostalgia they start to obtain whilst on this journey.
It is an exploration of the relationship between memory and space. This project shows how we are able to so quickly associate certain places, objects and spaces to specific memories and how these spaces can become very meaningful to us.
