Arte e Architettura
"Intertwining" is an international, interdisciplinary journal dedicated to understanding the experience and making of architecture. We include the voices of science alo ngside those of the arts--as both ways of knowing are critical to the multidimensional nature of our inquiry. While advances in the biological and neurosciences have radically expanded our understanding of ourselves and our interdependence with the environment, we have scarcely acknowledged how architecture and the built environment impact and shape human culture, experience and possibility. We can no longer consider buildings to be inert objects, but rather as bounded, supportive, developmental fields; therefore, rather than focusing on architecture per se, we seek to understand the process of making and experiencing architecture- -the richly complex ground where long cherished divisions between inner and outer worlds dissolve. Our aim is to understand relationships and interdependencies, to translate thought into action and, as our name suggests, to weave multiple disciplinary strands together in a mutually enlightening way.
