"An important contribution to theory and debate in architecture today . . . As an author of Questions of Perception I feel Sarah's book takes a crucial next step towards a phenomenology of architecture."
-- Steven Holl

"This book enlarges the discussion about the nature of architecture, and its role in mediating how we engage with the environment . . . The world got larger, richer, more finely grained for me after reading it."
-- David Mohney

"Opens thought-provoking, challenging and poetic views into a more balanced understanding of ourselves and our relationship with the world."
-- Juhani Pallasmaa
