A conversation about atmosphere in architecture
Henri Snel was participating in the lecture at Pakhuis de Zwijger on: ‘What do we mean when we speak of architectural quality? It is a question that I have little difficulty in answering. Quality in architecture . . . is to me when a building manages to move me. What on earth is it that moves me? How can I get it into my own work? . . . How do people design things with such a beautiful, natural presence, things that move me every single time. One word for it is Atmosphere.’
Peter Zumthor
