Overview


Architecture is part of our everyday life, but its ability to dramatically affect the way we think, feel, and interact with one another is often over­looked. This compelling volume brings the focus back to the sensual aspects of architecture—the subtle and intangible ways it impacts human experi­ence—through the work of six leading architects from around the world. Conversations with each of these architects—Grafton Architects, Kengo Kuma, Li Xiaodong, Francis Kéré, Pezo von Ellrichshausen, and Eduardo Souto de Moura and Álvaro Siza—show the multiplicity of ways in which different approaches to the built environment can affect the way in which we connect with our surroundings. An introduction by Philip Ursprung explores the background to this humanistic approach to design, and preparatory sketches illustrate key buildings by each of the architects.
