Poetic, Presence and Culture. Engaging with the longstanding art of building

Steve Larkin

My initial proposition is to research 3 main themes, poetics in architecture (as opposed to virtuosity), presence in space (visual and acoustic atmospheres) and architecture as register of culture and consciousness.
I would like to investigate these research areas with a structured reflection on my past practice and by comparison with analogous work through case studies. It will be important to identify case studies that have a metaphysical presence or meaning within their regional and artistic culture.
The research proposes to bring into sharp focus, the potential of practice that emphasises the poetic character of architecture, rather than an emphasis on the development of novel form.
