The Embodied Image: Imagination and Imagery inArchitecture
Juhani Pallasmaa

All artistic and architectural effects are evoked, mediated andexperienced through poeticised images. These images are embodiedand lived experiences that take place in ‘the flesh of theworld', becoming part of us, at the same time that we unconsciouslyproject aspects of ourselves on to a conceived space, object orevent. Artistic images have a life and reality of their own andthey develop through unexpected associations rather than rationaland causal logic. Images are usually thought of as retinal picturesbut profound poetic images are multi-sensory and they address us inan embodied and emotive manner.

Architecture is usually analysed and taught as a discipline thatarticulates space and geometry, but the mental impact ofarchitecture arises significantly from its image quality thatintegrates the various aspects and dimensions of experience into asingular, internalised and remembered entity. The material realityis fused with our mental and imaginative realm.

The book is organised into five main parts that look at in turn:the image in contemporary culture; language, thought and the image;the many faces of the image; the poetic image; and finally thearchitectural image. The Embodied Image is illustrated withover sixty images in pairs, which are diverse in subject. Theyrange from scientific images to historic artistic and architecturalmasterpieces. Artworks span Michelangelo and Vermeer to GordonMatta-Clark and architecture takes in Modern Masters such as Miesvan der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Alvar Aalto, as well as significantcontemporary works by Steven Holl and Daniel Libeskind.
