How does the room you’re sitting in make you feel? What is it about the soaring roof of a railway station, the damp odour of a cellar, the feel of worn stone steps beneath your feet, the muffled echo of a cloister or the cosy familiarity of your lounge that elicits glee, misery, fear or contentment?

We’ve tasked seven architects with reawakening our visitors’ sensibilities to the spaces around them – bringing to the fore the experiential qualities of architecture.

25 January — 6 April 2014
