The phenomenological tradition in architecture has the potential of complementing the dialectical legacy of socialism by emphasizing the ontological sensitivity of the subject with respect to the environment. The interpretation and study of architecture in which the corporeal potential of the subject is envisaged as being realized both individually and collectively through the referential experience and articulation of the built-form. What, then, should be the phenomenality of the democratic, emancipatory architecture of future humanity? How can we explore the intersection between architectural phenomenology and social justice, and its role in the new Anthropocene age?
