Mapping of Awe

The ambition of my project was to understand the psychological and spatial mechanisms behind spaces of awe.

To understand the spatial components behind constructed spaces of awe, I have been compiling an experience map that illustrates the physical properties of a space that might predict awe, identified from a variety of examples such as sacred spaces, nature and more.
