Sofia Boarino

, Switzerland
I was born in Casale Monferrato, a small town in the north of Italy. After humanistic studies and several internships in design and architectural studios, I decided to study architecture and applied to the Accademia di Architettura di Mendrisio, Switzerland, in 2014. Besides my interest in architecture I also make music as ‘Loto’, and since 2017 I have been combining my interests in music and architecture to create new projects. Recently I also became a fellow at Madworkshop foundation (L.A).

Témenos


Experience space in a new emotional way

Témenos


Experience space in a new emotional way
Témenos - from the latin ‘portion of sky’, ‘sacred enclosure’ - is a space designed to be a pause in the city, a place for every human to converge their thoughts, feelings and emotions to the highest degree through a one to one experience with art.

Given the undeniable link between the individual and its social environment, it is time to hold architecture accountable for the trend of the evolutionary process of man.
After years in which rationality, organization and control have been the main priorities in the architectural discipline, Témenos intends to represent a way to re-humanize architecture. In Témenos the individual rediscover himself as an emotional being, as his mind and body are put at the center of the spacial design: all visual distractions are blended out leaving space for introspection, prompting the observers to look without looking and to concentrate on emotions. The result is a resonant space, able to tune in with the user and to create empathy. This to me means to design for us, in the most effective way. Designing environments capable of making us feel present in space will not only lead the architectural discipline to a whole new level, but also raise the individual to a new sensibility.
