Calm Down: Recreational Architecture
Fenna Tinnefeld (Ed.)
Edition 1:1 / Deutscher Architektur Verlag, 2020
Whether for a few minutes, a weekend, or a long vacation, today’s spaces for recreation are available in a variety of forms and activities, and pursue a wide diversity of basic methodological ideas. Rather than being focused on productivity and efficiency, they allow one to unwind, contemplate, unravel, and experience. The 30 projects featured in this volume help create harmony and kindle a sense of recovery through their structural and material impact. The diverse scales and typologies they represent draw upon traditional constructions as well as modern spatial realities, wherein the design forms a framework for relaxation while enabling the mind to escape and reinvigorate.
