Keywords: Multi Sensory Responsive Architecture


The description of modern spaces is lacking in full range of sensory cues , which are not

present in most modern spaces They have also been neglected by designers, by not being

consciously manipulated and by not allowing them to happen . There is currently an

increased desire for sensory involvement for seeing, touching , smelling hearing and feeling of kinesthetic — a desire for increased sensuality manifest in many fields , witch may permit architecture with multi sensory information, if only designers can take advantage . Research calls for the approach that embraces all human being senses and modes of understanding, and to treat sound, touch, and odor as the equals of sight. Sensory response, sentiment, and memory are critical design factors, the equals of structure and program which help in The research explores the nature of our responses to spatial spaces—from various sorts of shopping buildings, which needs to be a fulfilling the experience, and should provide unique images , different from another visited places .

The absence of a comprehensive theoretical framework for the phenomenon of

multisensory responsive spaces in relation with distinctness images and exploring its implicit psychological aspects constitutes the main research problem. In view of the problem under investigation, the goal of the present research is to establish the main principles of the multi sensory space and mechanisms of the phenomenon and its consequences represented by making distinctive images in interior spaces.
