Maters and Education Philosophy:
The theoretical and practice philosophy that I have focuses on phenomenology and the
experience of architecture. Christian Norberg-Schultz, in his approach towards the
phenomenology of architecture, stated, “the task of the architect is to create meaningful places,
whereby he helps man to dwell”. The design process of perception shall be understood through
an analysis and discovery of the importance of the different realms that make up the transitions
into buildings and into interior spaces.
