The big can be understood through the small. When it comes to atmosphere, a room works according to the same principles as a house, a square, or a whole city. “Spatial atmosphere, no matter on what scale, is the result of reduction and materiality,” insists Max Dudler in a discussion with Simone Boldrin.
The Sale e Tabacchi, Hambach Castle, and the Jacob-und-Wilhelm-Grimm-Zentrum have gained international renown. Narrating Spaces approaches Dudler’s architecture through the interior spaces and furniture he has designed. Five contributions discuss the atmospheres of the interiors, the physical appropriation of the spaces, and the sensuality of the way they are furnished. Light and shadow, geometries, materials, and surfaces unfold in a photographic essay by Stefan Müller that makes it possible to visually experience their special atmospheres and haptic elements. With texts by Milan Bulaty, Peter Cachola Schmal, Kasper König, Renate Kreckel, and Georg F. Thoma.
