On the natural history of reconstruction. The affective space of post-earthquake landscapes

Federico de Matteis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Architectural spaces are central in eliciting moods and atmospherics feelings in subjects. In this paper, I describe the relation between specific spatial gestures and the emotional response that arises from situations, with a focus on the spontaneous architectural actions that are performed as response to the pervasive moods that subjects encounter in space. As a case study, I address the post-earthquake reconstruction of Italy's central Apennine region, that has been severely damaged by seismic events in 2016.
