Architecture and the anatomy of the human body share common innate physical properties, where the skin relates to the facade and the bones to the structural framework of a building. Beyond this metaphorical concept, the human body is at the centre of our understanding of form, space, volume, proportion and spatial awareness. When the different levels of the sensory systems of the human body are becoming the 4th dimension of architecture, then form follows senses before it follows function.
Pieris. Architects consider architecture in a sensual form – a form made to seduce you, a form that is not only concerned with physicality but potential. A form that arouses you from mere expectation.
Aiming to address through design both the psychic and practical implications of space, they design buildings that encompass meaning, merge into the environment, relate to natural and human ecology, embrace daylight, breath, respect nature and seek to capture the infinitely erotic dynamic essence of space. Through feeling or experience, a particular allegory is replicated within an object, building or artifact.
In their work, they often use the power of storytelling – creating a narrative –as a means to help solve problems or as a mechanism to explain their creative process.
Pieris.Architects deal with and predict the nature of the impact of building within the city and aim to construct its random and momentary agencies with care and due diligence. In their work the power of architecture is its’ strength to combine opposites, its’ ability to break social barriers through inclusion, its’ potential to contain a fluid idea within concrete form, its’ erotic quality which springs from its inherent playfulness with the natural elements, its’ ability to house the unexpected.
