We experience meaning in architecture when we derive - as observers - impressions from it and when we give - as designers - expressions to it. This implies that meaning in architecture, like in all other fields, is process and result. The related decision making involves judgments based on theoretical and practical issues, driven by purpose, context and realization. This book proceeds from explaining the philosophical foundations of meaning to interpreting physical designs of architecture. At the center of discussion is design thinking with rational and emotional components. Because of the latter, the results are profoundly aesthetic, that is, pleasure or displeasure arises from the form of the object. The concept of design narratives is developed as the dialog between the content and the form of projects. The text is profusely supported by illustrations in color and by extensive bibliographic references. "Meaning and Aesthetics in Architecture" - while being a rather personal account - provides a comprehensive basis for readers to develop their own thoughts and views.
