Building Narratives of Sensory Experiences

The complex networks of sensory modalities in our bodies help us extract maximum information from the environment for a comprehensive experience. Building an inclusive and diverse environment brings individuals of all nature closer and hence, this research is initiated by exploring architecture as a medium to address the sensory requirements of Neurodivergent Individuals, that are presumed ordinary by the Neurotypical Individuals. As senses are amplified or suppressed for Autistic Individuals, this research attempts in pressing the need for designing diverse environments allowing sensorial flexibilities and opportunities for cognitive and creative growth.

Spaces built using Natural materials can provide therapeutic, enriching and healthy atmosphere for Autistic Individuals. To understand their perception with Natural materials, a qualitative ‘Sensory Exploration Workshop’ was conducted. Additionally, quantitative responses from Autistic adults, therapists and parents were also analysed for supporting this research question further.

The interactive engagement through the Workshop gives a new dimension to possibilities of therapeutic activities with Natural materials than the known synthetic materials. Their flexible and adaptive attributes pave way to designing spaces as therapeutic mediums, thereby making it possible to control the sensorial intensities.

The research attempts to initiate a dialogue and innovate new possibilities of place-making for Neurodivergent Individuals.
