EMOTIONAL ARCHITECTURE 4. Calin Dan. Jap Sam Books, Heijningen, n.d. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica, 2014. 126 pp. with 131 ills. (130 col.). 15 x 21 cm. ISBN 9789490322397 In English.
Publisher's description: The Romanian Dutch artist and theorist Calin Dan has developed a specific field of research: "Emotional Architecture." Dan focuses on the experience, meaning and emotional value of architecture and urban environments; his almost psychoanalytical approach uses a blend of personal observations, folklore, historical facts and architectural analysis, which he blends within his art and theoretical writings. This extensively illustrated book focuses on the MinVROM building in The Hague, which symbolizes the changing role of government in Dutch society. MinVROM was the last project constructed and run by a government body in The Netherlands; now government institutions lease facilities developed independently by teams of architects, developers and urbanists. The change affects the relationship between the political and the social bodies, as they withdraw from the public domain into a neutral position.
