TAKE ONE BUILDING: INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH PERSPECTIVES OF THE SEATTLE CENTRAL LIBRARY. Ed. by Ruth Conroy Dalton and Christoph Holscher. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2016. Copyright 2017. 230 pp. with 46 ills. 26 x 18 cm. ISBN 9781472471147 In English.
Publisher's description: This book evaluates how we experience and understand buildings in different ways depending upon our academic and professional background. With reference to Rem Koolhaas' Seattle Central Library, the book illustrates a range of different methods available through its application to the building. By seeing such a variety of different research methods applied to one setting, it provides the opportunity for researchers to understand how tools can highlight various aspects of a building and how those different methods can augment, or complement, each other. Unique to this book are contributions from internationally renowned academics from fields including architecture, ethnography, architectural criticism, phenomenology, sociology, environmental psychology and cognitive science, all of which are united by a single, real-world application, the Seattle Central Library. This book will be of interest to architects and students of architecture as well as disciplines such as ethnography, sociology, environmental psychology, and cognitive science that have an interest in applying research methods to the built environment.
