Architecture that appeals to the other senses

Anyone know of any designs made for blind clients?

Also, how does architects go beyond the visual, and add tactile, sound, and smell to architecture?

question: does glulam wood loses its tactility and smell?

if it does then what are other effective ways to bend wood?

edit: nvm steam bending can be used.

here's some that I've found

here's an article about tactile architecture:



I've also heard that aluminum skyscrapers gives off uncomfortable static electricity effects when felt up.

I think architecture that appeals to other senses is really cool. Since I was a child I've always had one hand on thouching the walls of any building or hallway that I walk across.

I've been walking around with my eyes closed and I think that it is important for blind people to feel safe about not being robbed. I was walking down the street one night when some guy started talking from behind me and I swung at him by instinct.

It feels safer inside the university, but large empty spaces can be confusing sometimes.
