Item description for Decosterd & Rahm ¿ Physiological Architecture / Architecture Physiologique by Office Fédéral de la Culture...
"We emphasize such factors in architecture as materials, structures, space, and light, and their physical effects. We pay attention to the electromagnetic, biological, and chemical interaction between architecture, the environment, and our organism." (Dcosterd & Rahm). This book has been published for the exhibition in the Swiss Pavilion at the 8th International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Biennale 2002. The publication documents Dcosterd & Rahms contribution to the Biennale, and also investigates their work, their motivation, and philosophy; it also includes essays and critical appraisals of the work of these young architects from Lausanne. After completing their architectural studies in Lausanne Jean-Gilles Dcosterd (*1963) and Philippe Rahm (*1967) founded their own office Dcosterd & Rahm associs in 1993 with a branch office in Paris.
