Architecture faculty publish third issue of 'Interfaces'

Submitted by Elisabetta Canepa

"Interfaces 3: Generators of Architectural Atmosphere" is now available through New Prairie Press. The book is edited by Elisabetta Canepa and Bob Condia from the architecture department in the College of Architecture, Planning & Design. 

The "Interfaces" book series investigates the interplay of architecture, philosophy and biology through the lens of meaning in architecture.

The volume collects three essays: "The Atmospheric Equation and the Weight of Architectural Generators" by Canepa; "Sensing the Atmospheric Space Through a Virtual Lens: Scrutinizing Opportunities and Limitations" by Kutay Güler, associate professor of interior architecture & industrial design; and "Locating Architectural Atmosphere" by Sergei Gepshtein and Tiziana Proietti. Condia provided a critical introduction titled "The Applied Science of Generating Atmospheres in Architecture."

The book was born as the legacy of the "Generators of Architectural Atmosphere" Symposium, an "Interfaces" event of the Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture, sponsored by the European Union's Horizon 2020 MSCA Program — Resonances project, the Perkins Eastman Studio and the 2020 Regnier Chair. The event was hosted in the College of Architecture, Planning & Design on April 12, 2022. Recent advances in empirical sciences are confirming many of the architect's expert intuitions opening new doors to the perception of space and the meaning of architectural design.

The Resonances project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement no. 101025132. For further information, visit resonances-project.com
