Bibliography Includes bibliographical references.
Summary Atmosphere Anatomies' illustrates how the atmosphere can affect sensory and physiological well-being when incorporated as a meteorological medium into the disciplines of design, particularly urban design and landscape architecture. Using paradigmatic projects, the essays discuss the diverse techniques and contexts that have focused on the atmosphere as an essential part of the design process. Woven throughout the book, the evocative photographic essays of Iwan Baan showcase selected design projects in their function as everyday spaces, which should be both delightful and inhabited. The critical and visual examination of these various projects illustrates that the integration of atmosphere creates spaces of social, emotional, and environmental relevance. Atmosphere Anatomies builds on this premise and explores the role of architecture and design in the context of increasing climate change, health challenges, and the sustainable use of our resources.
