More felt than seen, space is a key quality of architecture that has eluded definition for centuries. People speak of how they feel in certain spaces, or how they move through them, yet those spaces are only truly defined by their functions, or the architecture that encapsulates them. In Revisions of Space, architect Dick van Gameren shows how the spatial quality of architecture is connected with densification and programmatic diversity: in buildings, around buildings, and in the larger urban context. Through a selection of unusual historic examples and his own work, van Gameren creates this manual for architectural design, which places particular emphasis on how designers can address the evasive issue of space. With its highly original roster of historic examples, this book also reads as an unconventional and fascinating cross-section of the history of architecture.
