ArchiPhen is simultaneously architecture and phenomenology, architecture's phenomenology, phenomenology in architecture. The name was coined in a moment of conviction that an invitation to ArchiPhen is timely for practitioners, scholars and students unaware of the importance of phenomenology for architectural discourse and making within a contemporary context. Phenomenology is rooted in the first person perspective and seeks inter-subjectivity, the shared cognition that shapes our ideas and relationships with the world surrounding us. With reference to architecture, the study of phenomenology may inform architectural discourse by borrowing from phenomenologists-philosophers, by implementing phenomenological thought in architectural making, analysis and interpretation, and by applying phenomenology, as radical empiricism, to the realm of architecture. Although phenomen! ology has been practiced in various guises for centuries, it came into its own in the early 20th century, and was explicitly related to architecture for the first time in the 1950's. Many scholars have since contributed, to the discussion of architecture-phenomenology, themes for consideration that have evolved with the metamorphosis of architectural history and its context. Shedding light on the most profound concerns of architecture, the field is attracting new generations of scholars in a variety of events, among them participants in the Architecture and Phenomenology Conference, held at the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology in May 2007. Based on a selection of conference presentations, this publication of short, illustrated essays intends to provide an accessible entrance into the field of architecture and phenomenology.  (Iris Aravot)
