Sensing Spaces: Architecture Reimagined at Royal Academy

This volume, published as a companion book to the Royal Academy's 2014 exhibition, explores the sensual aspects of architecture through the work of six leading architects from around the world, including Kengo Kuma, Li Xiaodong and Pezo von Ellrichshausenall.

Each architect created a unique immersive installation for the Royal Academy to explore how architecture can make us feel. Conversations with each of these architects show the multiplicity of ways in which different approaches to the built environment can affect the way in which we connect with our surroundings.  An introduction by Philip Ursprung explores the background to this humanistic approach to design. The book is fully illustrated with preparatory sketches and key buildings by each of the architects.
