Description

 Experiencing architecture means seeing architecture. Certain aspects and contexts of the perception of architecture can best be explained by means of images. This is the idea upon which this book is based. Jorg Kurt Grutter has divided selected structural details into individual chapters, including such subjects as space, colour, dynamics and surface. The reader can discover analogies as well as contradictions and view the photos completely independent of the texts. In the back of the book all the information about the structures depicted in the front can be found: location, architects, year of construction, etc. - as well as a complete view of the building and texts about architecture and perception. All photographs were taken by Grutter travelling and living in foreign countries on every continent. They depict a great number of famous and representative structures from different ages and cultures.
