ARCHITECTURE, CULTURE AND SPIRITUALITY. Ed. by Thomas Barrie et al. Ashgate Publishing, Farnham/Burlington, 2015. 270 pp. with 118 ills. 25 x 18 cm. LC 2015-11906 ISBN 9781472441713 In English.
Publisher's description: Architecture has long been understood as a cultural discipline able to articulate the human condition and lift the human spirit, yet the spirituality of architecture is rarely directly addressed in academic scholarship. The seventeen chapters provide a diverse range of perspectives, grouped according to topical themes: Being in the World; Sacred, Secular, and the Contemporary Condition; Symbolic Engagements; Sacred Landscapes; and Spirituality and the Designed Environment. Even though the authors' approach the subject from a range of disciplines and theoretical positions, all share interests in the need to rediscover, redefine, or reclaim the sacred in everyday experience, scholarly analysis, and design.
