Satyendra Pakhalé , Principal, Satyendra Pakhalé Associates, Amsterdam, NL and Tiziana Proietti, PhD, Professor, University of Oklahoma, Norman, USA lecture on The atmosphere of objects at the 4th International Congress on Ambiances, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA (UCSB)-2020/2021. In this lecture, Pakhalé and Proietti disclose some aspects of the research platform named Culture of Creation. Culture of creation is the place of making, thinking, discussing, acting, contemplating, questioning, all animated by tireless research at the root of the meaning of creation. In this context, the idea of objects’ atmosphere is understood as a part of a bigger picture where multiple topics – including poetic analogy, sensorial design, social modernity, technology and craftsmanship, secular humanism – converge to expand their own meaning. Here we place attention on the concept of atmosphere by showing how some connections with related topics are embodied in broader thinking as well as in the studio practice.
