Tidwell), with contributions from Gernot Boehme, Tonino Griffero, Jean-Paul Thibaud, and Juhani Pallasmaa.

The seminar was led beginning with some main questions: How is the atmosphere of a space created? How do architecture and design contribute to the atmosphere? And, as Esa Laaksonen (director of the Alvar Aalto Academy) said: When designing a building, how can one create an atmosphere that is homely and safe?
