About the Author

Jonathan Hale is an architect and an associate professor in architecture at the University of Nottingham. He is the author of: Building Ideas: An introduction to architectural theory (Wiley 2000) and Ends Middles Beginnings: Edward Cullinan Architects (Black Dog 2005), and a co-editor of: Rethinking Technology; A reader in architectural theory (Routledge 2007) and From Models to Drawings (Routledge 2007). He has previously taught at the University of Bath; Philadelphia University and Drexel University, and has been an invited lecturer at universities in the USA, Sweden, China and New Zealand.


'The phenomenological features of Merleau-Ponty's notion of embodiment have today received extensive support by contemporary biological and neuroscientific research. Hale's book, which highlights and distills the pivotal insights of the French philosopher, is essential reading for every architect who might ponder how people actually perceive their designed environments.' - Harry Francis Mallgrave, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Illinois Institute of Technology, USA
