Architecture as a Sign of Objective Reality: Temporalizing Space in Husserl’s Lectures on Time

Jariya Nualnirun


Husserl, in his work The Phenomenology of Internal Time-Consciousness, developed ideas concerning a process of object formation called temporalizing space. He affirmed that by such a process, lived experience can be perceived as a sign of objective reality. Throughout the late century, phenomenologists have applied Husserl’s notion of internal  time to justify the work of art in relation to truth. This can be extended to the architectural field, where the phenomenological theory of perception has been related to the idea of building and dwelling. Even as Husserl’s work has been frequently challenged, his approach to time consciousness is still valuable in approaching the question of how objective reality be constituted through a piece of architecture.
