The Thinking Hand: Existential and Embodied Wisdom in Architecture by Juhani Pallasmaa
Book Review by thitta
The thinking hand explores how our mind maps our intelligence through hand. The touch and feel is not the only sensory reaction from our hand to mind. Each and every act by hand sends signals to our mind. Juhani Pallasmaa instills the need to sketch and do any work that involves the hand.
The critical book review by thitta will explore the context of the book and our current art/design world.
This Book Review is part of The Origin's monthly scheduled event.
