Gregor Eichinger's work with the idea of the Benuzeroberfläche; the user interface or experience of architecture, raises a host of fascinating ideas. The neglect of sensory intellegence he identifies in current practice is beautifully explaned. This conversation with architect Eberhardt Tröger ranges over a wide area and is completed by a pictorial essay and some very instructive quotes from other sources. 

Structure

As possibly the most sensation-dense artform we have, architecture can often be one of the most negligent of the user experience. Given the long life and unavoidability of so much of our built environment, this call for identifiable criteria and nomenclature in assessing the user experience is timely and articulate.
