Abstract
ABSTRACT

The inspiration for the development of this project - The Museum for the Human Body in Georgetown, Washington D.C. - was based on a study of the anatomy of movement and its Relationship to space. “A Journey from the mind to the soul” is the connective experience linking the spaces of the project (body, mind and soul). This study is inspired by ideas from the early Chinese, Egyptian and Aristotelian philosophies as well as the drawings of Leonardo da Vinci in searching for the “sensus communis” as the location of the soul within the body.
