Gernot Böhme‘s Atmospheric Architecture: The Aesthetics of Felt Spaces has been recently published by Bloomsbury Academics.
This book translates into English brings together Böhme’s most seminal writings on the subject.
Combining philosophy with architecture, design, landscape design, scenography, music, art criticism, and visual arts, the essays together provide a key to the concepts that motivate the work of some of the best contemporary architects, artists, and theorists: from Peter Zumthor, Herzog & de Meuron and Juhani Pallasmaa to Olafur Eliasson and James Turrell.
