Architecture as experience

£24.99

Product description

Architecture as Experience investigates the perception and appropriation of places across intervals of time and culture. The particular concern of the volume is to bring together fresh empirical research and animate it through contact with theoretical sophistication, without overwhelming the material. The chapters establish the continuity of a particular physical object and show it in at least two alternative historical perspectives, in which recognisable features are shown in different lights. The results are often surprising,inverting the common idea of a historic place as having an enduring meaning.This book shows the insight that can be gained from learning about earlier constructions of meaning which have been derived from the same buildings that stand before us today. This book is in good condition. Clean pages apart from small amount of rubbing out on the first page. Cover is good apart from wear and tear from being read and small amount of wear to the edges and corners.
