Juhani Pallasmaa: For pointing out the over emphasis of visual impact in design and encouraging a multi sensory experience of architecture. Examples include stairs that curve towards the line of motion, handrails that you can get your hands around and is pleasurable to the touch, falling water or crunching gravel as sounds, and flowers or other smells as part of the building.
Juhani Pallasmaa for studying how animals build in nature and comparing and contrasting that to how humans build and live in their environment.
