Abstract: An awareness and design workshop for students of architecture and town planning and of landscape architecture is described. The workshop is based on the assumption that the alienation that we often experience in our encounter with the spatial presence of places is due to an alienation of the architectural imagination - the architect's inability to base his/her design on his/her own direct, naive, pre-reflective experience of the spatial presence of places. The workshop strives to increase the participants' awareness of this layer of their experience and to train them in letting their imagination relate to it in their design of places. The workshop draws on humanist psychology, in assuming that when an architect becomes aware of and accepts his/her direct, naive, pre-reflective experience, his/her ability to design a place in which he/she might experience a sense of well-being and enrichment will increase. So, also will increase his/her ability to accept and identify with the existential relationships that the clients experience in the spatial presence of a place and to design it accordingly. This paper describes the ecoanalysis process the participants go through in order to make them more aware. Following this awareness process, the participants were required: a) to design their own home; b) to design a home for one of the other participants; c) to design a condominium that would accommodate all the participants in the workshop. This is illustrated by documenting the process undergone by one of the participants and the homes he designed, along with the feedback responses provided by participants in the workshop.
