Archaeology, Atmosphere and Building Spaces. A New Book by Mikkel Bille and Tim F. Sørensen

Elements of Architecture: Assembling archaeology, atmosphere and the performance of building spaces (ed. by Mikkel Bille and Tim Flohr Sørensen, Routledge, Abingdon (UK) and New York (USA))



Beyond the steel framework of a building, we need to enter into the fog of architecture and adopt the ontologically indistinct as the starting point for tracing the connections shaping the tangible and the intangible aspects of human lives. […] The aim of most of the contributions in this book […] is to highlight the potentials as well as the challenges of taking the intangible, that absent and the processual as a point of departure […] allowing us to confront architecture as assembled and emergent, by being more than the individual parts. At the same time – and as a consequence – architecture also hinges on processes of fragmentation and disintegration with a very material expression.

(Bille & Sørensen, from the Introduction)
