ABSTRACT
The moral, financial and aesthetic crisis of architecture call for a new paradigm, based on ethics rather than aesthetics. This study focusing on Sami Rintala’s works is an attempt to examine conceptual tendencies of architecture and compare them to similar ones in related art. Based on two significant books (Ernst Schumacher’s Small is beautiful and Eyes of the Skin from Juhani Pallasmaa) it decodes ecological and sensual intentions in today’s conceptual architecture. By conducting interviews and building together with Sami Rintala on a workshop in Munich, this research became not only personal but also practical.

Keywords: conceptual architecture, art, social architecture, responsive architecture, multi-sensorial architecture
