I would give this 35 stars if I could This is the first book I have read on architecture and it has introduced me to a number of exciting ideas such as the effects of acoustics in architecture and use of light and color The author writes in a casual style which makes it very easy to follow along but also means he makes several unsupported claims it is a well known fact that seeing riding boots produces a sense of honor and royalty in the viewer and that tennis rackets produce feelings of vitality The numerous jabs at primitive people also made me cringe a bit Overall this was a good introduction Lost Souls used The individual was in fruitful contact with these things; the anonymous houses were built with a natural feeling for place materials and The House on Tradd Street unsupported claims it is a well known fact that seeing riding boots produces a sense of honor and royalty in the viewer and that tennis rackets produce feelings of vitality The numerous jabs at primitive people also made me cringe a bit Overall this was a good introduction

Free read Experiencing Architecture ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Inary people are doomed to live in and gaze upon are on the whole without uality We cannot however go back to the old method of personally supervised handicrafts We must strive to advance by arousing interest in and understanding of the work the architect does The basis of competent professionalism is a sympathetic and knowledgeable group of amateurs of non professional art lover. I did enjoy this little volume and will be content to have it sit among the other books on architecture on my shelves but almost for the crisp yet creamy black and white photos of walnut chairs teacups bricks for the silken sheen of the paper they have been printed on and for the lovely library smell of the book than for the text itself which in a number of ways has not stood the test of time as well as one might have wished There is much contrasting of the civilized people of Europe with primitive peoples and cultures elsewhere much exclusive use of he not just for architects architecture no doubt having been a uniformly male arena in the late 1950s but indeed for humans of any description and much expositing on what one naturally or automatically thinks or likes or feels That being said this classic is obviously far from being without value even as a text The central tenet which is that architecture is primarily something to be experienced by and with the body and its senses and not something to be coldly and formally analysed and criticized is one I heartily agree with If used as a class text or in serious private study it can benefit from being read together with Susan Sontag s excellent little essay Against Interpretation It can also be paired with Juhani Pallasmaa s eually concise and beautiful volume The Eyes of the Skin and Peter Zumthor s wonderful Atmospheres both of which owe an acknowledged debt to Rasmussen s book

Free read Experiencing Architecture ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Profusely illustrated with fine instances of architectural experimentation through the centuries Experiencing Architecture manages to convey the intellectual excitement of superb design From teacups riding boots golf balls and underwater sculpture to the villas of Palladio and the fish feeding pavilion of the Peking Winter Palace the author ranges over the less familiar byways of. I never thought much about architecture in the past and now wonder why I was recommended Experiencing Architecture by an architect and I was hesitant to grab it because of my lack of knowledge on the field I can now say that this book is an essential for art lovers and you will understand why shortly after having started reading the preface It is possible to get as much pleasure from architecture as the nature lover does from plants The book elaborates on this idea by giving mind blowing examples from our daily lives and drawing comparing analogies with activities and elements we can all relate to Not only can you see touch and hear architecture but through these senses you can also feel it In Dickens s novels buildings and interiors acuire souls in some demoniacal way corresponding to the souls of the inhabitants The author indirectly touches upon literature uite a few times and after reading this sentence I immediately remembered how Mr Dickens s descriptions of scenery and buildings feel vivid and real so much so that I feel anxious when the time a character spends there is elongated So it is Mr Dickens himself that EXPERIENCED architecture in the first place and then used his craft of storytelling to make the readers experience it through words I highlighted so many parts of this book that it s impossible to summarize them in a short review but I will conclude this with my very favorite uote from the book If we believe that the object of architecture is to provide a framework for people s lives then the rooms in our houses and the relation between them must be determined by the way we will live in them and move through them
