How do Spaces Become Special: An Analysis of Phenomenology in Architecture

The role of phenomenology in architectural design is to create spaces that evoke emotions and have meaning for the individuals who use them. Phenomenology was first introduced to architecture by philosopher and architect Christian Norberg-Schulz in his book "Genius Loci: Towards a Phenomenology of Architecture." Phenomenology informs each stage of the architectural design process, from conceptualization to construction, by focusing on the essence of the user's experience and designing spaces that respond to it. Key elements such as light, space, and material play an important role in creating meaningful experiences. Despite its challenges and limitations, the use of phenomenology in architecture is a critical tool for architects to create spaces that are both functional and meaningful, providing meaningful experiences for users.
