Archiol Competitions is delighted to announce the Sensory Space Essay Competition, a platform for aspiring and established architects, designers, and writers to explore the profound impact of sensory experiences in architectural design. Sensory spaces engage occupants on a multi-sensory level, transforming the way we perceive and interact with our built environment. This competition invites entrants to delve deep into the world of sensory architecture, unveiling its principles, challenges, and innovations.
