Annotation

Experiencing architecture means seeing architecture. Certain aspects and contexts of the perception of architecture can best be explained by means of images. This is the idea upon which this book is based.

Publisher Description

Certain aspects and contexts of the perception of architecture can best be explained by means of images - that is the idea upon which this book is based. The author has divided selected structural details into individual chapters, including such subjects as space, color, dynamics and surface.

The reader can discover analogies as well as contradictions and view the photos completely independent of the texts. In the back of the book all the information about the structures depicted in the front can be found, as well as a complete view of the buildings and texts about architecture and perception. The photographs were taken in foreign countries on every continent and depict a great number of famous and representative structures from different ages and cultures.

Experiencing architecture means seeing architecture. Certain aspects and contexts of the perception of architecture can best be explained by means of images. This is the idea upon which this book is based. Jorg Kurt Grutter has divided selected structural details into individual chapters, including such subjects as space, colour, dynamics and surface.
