Poetics in architecture, Issue 2
Can architecture directly engage with the inner experience of people? Does it have universal or spiritual content?
Poetics in Architecture attempts to address these questions by looking at the essence of meaning of architecture and considering the human response to buildings. Schaik's concern is that by focusing on technical refinements and new procedural models architects are in danger of alienating the collective human connections we make with buildings.
This title brings together the views of a fascinating and diverse group of architects and theoreticians from all over the world including Bolles-Wilson, Boyarsky Wilson, Winka Dubbledam, Sean Godsell, Mark Goulthorpe of dECOI and Tom Kovac.
