Since the book's first publication, interest in the role of the body and the senses has been emerging in both architectural philosophy and teaching. This new, revised and extended edition of this seminal work will not only inspire architects and students to design more holistic architecture, but will enrich the general reader's perception of the world around them. The Eyes of the Skin has become a classic of architectural theory and consists of two extended essays. The first surveys the historical development of the ocular-centric paradigm in western culture since the Greeks, and its impact on the experience of the world and the nature of architecture. The second examines the role of the other senses in authentic architectural experiences, and points the way towards a multi-sensory architecture which facilitates a sense of belonging and integration.Biografía del autor:
JUHANI PALLASMAA is one of Finland's most distinguished architects and architectural theorists. In all aspects of his theoretical and design practice - which includes architecture, graphic design, urban planning and exhibitions - he places a consistent emphasis on the importance of identity, sensorial experience and tactility.
