      Book Description. This book explores the role of silence in how we design, present and experi-ence architecture. Grounded in phenomenological theory, the book builds on historical, theoretical and practical approaches to examine silence as a methodological tool of architectural research and unravel the experiential qualities of the design process. For some, Goa is the dream place for lazy days, hanging hammocks and a nice book. While for the rest, it is about long walks, beautiful sunsets and equally stunning sunrises. Most are unaware that this beachy destination has a number of small islands that totally redefine tranquility.
