In pursuit of a new and interdisciplinary approach to archi-
tecture, the following theoretical framework is the first part,
consisting of two, developed for a Master Thesis. This first
part aims to establish a list of applicable principles for an
architectural project in the second part. To understand the
consequences of a space, three existing theories are inves-
tigated by way of a neurophysiological approach. The aim
is to apprehend architecture through the scope of sensory,
specifically thermal sensory, and furthermore establish a
theory, consisting, inter alia, of a list of principles.
