Following Norberg-Schulz examines the life and work of the seminal architectural thinker Christian Norberg-Schulz (1926 - 2000), drawing new attention to his architectural designs and re-examining his acclaimed theoretical work on the phenomenology of architecture and place.
Taking an innovative, experimental approach, the book also explores the potential of the essay-film as a new approach to producing architectural history. Written by an architectural historian who is also a film-maker, its ten chapters are each accompanied by a short documentary film, accessed from within each chapter by a QR code, exploring how to use the medium of film to delve deeper into little-known aspects of Norberg-Schulz's theory of genius loci and the phenomenology of architecture.
Offering an insightful account of the work and theories of a key architectural thinker, Following Norberg-Schulz is also essential reading for those interested in practice-led and design-led research, showing how scholarly research can bridge the text-film gap.
