New book on Architectural Atmospheres by Christian Borch

Cluster facilitator Christian Borch is the editor behind the new book 'Architectural Atmospheres - On the Experience and Politics of Architecture', with contributions from also Gernot Bohme and Olafur Eliasson.

By looking into how there is a growing awareness of the atmospheric dimensions of architecture in contemporary architectural practice as well as in social and architectural theory, the book provides a pointed, programmatic discussion of this atmospheric turn. It is essential reading for architects, planners, and social theorists who take an interest in how we experience architecture and how to improve architectural and urban design.
