Atmosfere Costruite = Constructed Atmospheres

Rahm, Philippe (Ecole nationale supérieure d'architecture de Versailles) ; Scuderi, Massimiliano (ed.)

The original vision on contemporary design and the encounter with other disciplines opens the architecture of Philippe Rahm to multiple possibilities. Constructed Atmospheres provides a selection of projects in which light, temperature, pressure, humidity, represent the 'brick' for a new discipline that can be defined by the term "meteorological design". Philippe Rahm's design is based on the principle that man faces reality from the inside and does not produce objects but atmospheres. The book provides a profile of the Swiss architect both as a theorist and as a designer, through the most recent works and a series of conversations conducted by Massimiliano Scuderi between 2011 and today. This book has been published with the support of Pro Helvetia.

La visione innovativa sul progetto contemporaneo e l'incontro con le altre discipline apre l'architettura di Philippe Rahm a molteplici possibilità. Una selezione di progetti in cui luce, temperatura, pressione, umidità, rappresentano i 'mattoni' per una nuova disciplina che si può definire con il termine di 'architettura meteorologica'. L'idea di design di Philippe Rahm si basa sul principio secondo il quale l'uomo affronta la realtà dal suo interno e non produce oggetti ma atmosfere. Il libro fornisce un profilo dell'architetto svizzero, sia come teorico che come progettista, attraverso i più importanti lavori, le opere più recenti ed una serie di interviste realizzate da Massimiliano Scuderi dal 2011 ad oggi. Questo libro è pubblicato con il sostegno di Pro Helvetia, Fondazione svizzera per la cultura.
