The Re-Use of Urban Ruins : Atmospheric Inquiries of the City Hardback
Part of the Routledge Advances in Sociology series
How do urban ruins provoke their cultural revaluation?
This book offers a unique sociological analysis about the social agencies of material culture and atmospheric knowledge of buildings in the making.
It draws on ethnographic research in Berlin along the former Palace of the Republic, the E-Werk and the Cafe Moskau in order to make visible an interdisciplinary regime of design experts who have developed a professional sensorium turning the built memory of the city into an object of aesthetic inquiry.
