“Somatics for Architecture and Landscape” is a recognized Título Propio* offered by the San Pablo C.E.U University in Madrid. It is the first Título Propio of its kind being developed in Spain. Its main point of innovation is the extensive use of embodied cognition, mainly through ATM lessons of the Feldenkrais Method, combined with multiple theoretical lectures, debates, and open-air sessions within the landscape.
It is a multidisciplinary approach to Architecture and Landscape, where you are introduced to the relationships between body and space, neuroscience, perception and movement, imagination and their intertwining with philosophy, ecology and politics in their interconnection with architecture and landscape.
Learning happens double fold: on one hand, there is the learning associated with the issues studied within the program and on the other hand, there is the learning as an embodied experience. Both are strongly interrelated.
This Título Propio comes as a collaboration agreement with the Feldenkrais Institute and is offered by the Faculty of Architecture of the Institute of Technology (E.P.S) of the San Pablo C.E.U University.
The course is specially oriented towards students and professionals of Architecture and Landscape BUT is equally open to students and professionals of Arts (Fine, Scenic or Performing Arts), cultural studies, somatic or dance disciplines, or simply whoever is curious and interested in this approach. Multidisciplinarity is very welcome!
