Description

In amusement parks and theme parts architecture has long been used to help generate an emotional experience, its existence justified beyond the mere functionality of its external structures. This trend is now pervading shopping malls, airports, museums, even banks and it is one which the most progressive architects will have to confront as it becomes an increasingly important feature for investors and users in our pleasure-seeking society.

Animation investigates this global trend in contemporary architecture for the first time. Using rich visual images, structured arguments, and astute analytical texts, it reveals how animation architecture functions. It examines the essential features and prerequisites and demonstrates how it can be used to achieve a wide range of objectives and impacts.

With a wealth of international examples ranging from the prototype Disneyland where Walt Disney's concepts of animation were congenially transformed into reality, to historical amusement parks and modern day theme parks, this book explores a topic which poses a challenge to every architect building in today's world.
