Architecture can thrill you or awe you, calm you down or foster connection. It can be caring and protective – or stimulate your curiosity, igniting idle senses and unfolding unseen worlds
We bring ourselves into architecture, filling space with atmosphere – but architecture has an agency of its own. Space can suggest you to do things: jump or shout, move fast or slow, be active or rest, make you alert or relaxed, keep to the side, or take center stage.

This reverberating relationship is not only the context in which 3XN GXN works but underscores the enduring effect that the built environment has on us and on our surroundings.

The installations in Aware present some of the fundamental concepts of space: not bricks, concrete or steel, but relations between bodies and space, between spatial atmospheres and human emotions. Aware encourages you to explore and reflect on your experience of space, delving into the behavioural principles behind architecture and their transformative potential.

At home, at work, at school, we are almost always present within architecture. Aware asks you to consider the questions buried beneath the surface: what emotional effect does architecture have on you and your everyday quality of life?
