Immaterial Architecture - Jonathan Hill.
This book is one of the best accounts of Architectural Theory I’ve ever read. The ideals created by Hill about immateriality are truly eye opening and warrant a deeper analysis and experimentation into it’s practicalities within Architecture.
Within the book, Hill sets up an Index of Immaterial Qualities which can act as not only theoretical drivers but potentially pragmatic ones to further enhance the Architectural experience, phenomenologically - in a bid to drive multi sensory experiences. These indexes range from Condensation to Air-Conditioning to Fireworks and my particular favourite dust. (which is shown above)
Jonathan Hill works as an Academic and Architectural Historian at The Bartlett and runs Unit 12
