S02 Episode 05: Auxiliadora Gálvez on how profound spatial awareness learned from choreography and the Feldenkrais Method inspires the practice and teaching of radical sustainable architecture


In Episode 5 of Series 2, Auxiliadora Gálvez explains how flamenco and Feldenkrais first stimulated her embodied approach to architectural training. With her students and collaborators on PSAAP, the Platform of Somatics for Architecture and Landscape, at the San Pablo CEU University in Madrid, she explores and experiments on body aware understandings of how humans and environments relate. Making students experience spatial concepts in their bodies has improved student success and creative output, and is why somatic education is now at the heart of Auxiliadora’s teaching, research and architectural practice.
