Spaces Speak, Are You Listening?: Experiencing Aural Architecture
Publisher: The MIT Press | ISBN: 026251317X | edition 2009 | PDF | 436 pages | 2,95 mb
A very engaging, wide-ranging look at the aural environment from many perspectives: cultural, historical, architectural, physical, sociological, political and more. The authors explore many of the deep and often times not-so-obvious connections and influences in an unusual, informative and refreshingly multi-disciplinary approach. Even though covered topics are broad in scope and complexity, the book is written in an easy and engaging conversational style that is neither academically stodgy nor technically overwhelming. But neither does it attempt to simplify the subject into shallow triviality.
