Senses are the new brick.

It has almost become a cliché opinion that urban environments distinguish the person from space, limit our freedom and cause stress. However, future architecture should not be considered as something that disturbs our harmony, but contributes to it.

The Urban Yoga using modern mediums - yoga, photography, video and the internet - communicates directly to those that are using space. It encourages them to feel and experience space by using their whole body, emphasizing the subconscious omni-sensory experience; it is not our focused vision, but what we smell, touch, see and hear without realizing that defines most whether we feel good in a certain environment.

The Urban Yoga forges a link between the self and the space, just as the practice of yoga brings oneself back in touch with the body. It is a call to action to design future architecture that is not only visually and technologically stunning, but also designed with a subconscious sensory experience in mind.
