Book launch and lecture: Constructed Atmospheres: Architecture as Meteorological Design

The original vision on contemporary design and the encounter with other disciplines opens the architecture of Philippe Rahm to multiple possibilities. Constructed Atmospheres provides a selection of projects in which light, temperature, pressure, humidity, represent the ‘brick’ for a new discipline that can be defined by the term «meteorological design».

Philippe Rahm’s design is based on the principle that man faces reality from the inside and does not produce objects but atmospheres. The book provides a profile of the Swiss architect both as a theorist and as a designer, through the most recent works and a series of conversations conducted by Massimiliano Scuderi between 2011 and today. This book has been published with the support of Pro Helvetia (Swiss arts council).

Philippe Rahm is a Design Critic in Architecture at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design during the Fall 2014 semester, where he teaches the course “Built Climates”.
