listen, listen intently
to substance and materiality
listen, listen intently
for in listening, we discover, and we find meaning

in the space
and in the place
of architecture

University Professor David J. Liebermann Architekt
Architect, artist, poet, and filmmaker, David Lieberman identifies as an alchemist in asserting that architecture constructs mechanisms by which to transform experience in considering the body as an empathic instrument to apprehend and to understand space. Traditional spatial composition has relied upon the surfaces of resistance and reflection; space can be understood as the dissolve and in the blur of the visual and the aural at the limits of perception and tactility. In Austria, explorations will include the forests: the Birkenwald of Gustav Klimt and the Jurassic spruce, the wood of choice for the string instruments of Cremona and the sound boards of pianos as post cinematic expressions with respect for the craft of making.
