Summary "There is a growing awareness of the atmospheric dimensions of architecture in contemporary architectural practice as well as in social and architectural theory. Architectural Atmospheres provides a pointed, programmatic discussion of this atmospheric turn. The book is essential reading for architects, planners, and social theorists who take an interest in how we experience architecture and in how to improve architectural and urban design"--Provided by publisher
