'The Experience of Architecture' tente de comprendre comment nos actes quotidiens peuvent être directement influencés par la configuration architecturale des lieux, un concept essentiel pour tous les architectes refusant de réduire les bâtiments au seul aspect esthétique ou commercial.

Cet ouvrage n'interpellera pas seulement les architectes et les professionnels engagés dans la production de l'espace, mais aussi  tous ceux qu'une compréhension plus riche de leur environnement intéresserait.

Chaque chapitre se concentre sur un aspect différent de notre interaction avec l'architecture comme les marches, les sols et les cheminements, les circulations intérieures, la perception et la perspective, la transparence et la relation entre un bâtiment et son environnement.


'The Experience of Architecture' aims to understand how everyday acts in space are influenced by architectural form, a concept that is vital for all architects to grasp if our buildings are to be anything more than a commercial or aesthetic enterprise.

This book will appeal not only to architects and designers engaged in the production of space, but also to a richer understanding of their place in the built world.

It considers how specific built elements and volumes, taken from a wide array of buildings and settings around the world, can sustain or deny our powers of decision. From the hand-carved stairs in Greek villages to free-floating catwalks, the elegant processional steps of Renaissance Italy to Frank Lloyd Wright's masterly manipulation of form, the seemingly random placement of Japanese stepping stones to the staircase in Pierre Chareau's Maison de Verre, all provide very different experiences of stepping from one level to the next, and all affect our experience of that space.

Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of our daily interactions with architecture, looking at stairs, floors and paths, moving interior spaces, perception and perspective, transparency and the relationship between a building and its setting.
