Part of the Architectural Design Primer series


Architecture is usually analyzed and taught as a discipline that articulates space and geometry, but the mental impact of architecture arises significantly from its image.

Written by distinguished writer and architect Juhani Pallasmaa, this book examines at the image in culture; the nature of the image and imagination; and the specific characteristics of the artistic image, concluding with the architectural image.

The Embodied Image is illustrated with more than 40 paired images, ranging from scientific images to historic artistic and architectural masterpieces, and contemporary architectural and artistic works.
