The Orange Hall
Disappearing and appearing continuously in the buzz of this massive
are the voices of the worker bees
or the steps of the ants
busy in the harvest of their knowledge
like sounds clashing composing this confusing symphony
which comes and goes
in this room
which is not a room
but rather a world opened towards on other worlds
There is no in and no out
no far and no close
It takes a big effort to keep your mind silent and listen
while the walls are smiling to you, and scanning
with their silent eyes
Anna de Putti
Slim lines of glossy steel,
massive walls of wise bricks.
Your identity resides in your contrasts
in your “in betweens”s.
Your only de nition
is the contradictions you encompass.

On Nov 22nd, 2016, a one-day workshop ‘Interpreting Atmosphere’ was held at the Faculty of Architecture in Delft. The workshop allowed 20 students to get acquainted with the theme of atmosphere in architecture, an architectural aspect that often remains unaddressed in education. In contemporary architectural practice we can recognise a renewed interest in the intrinsic relation between atmospheric experience and architectural quality.
The workshop challenged students to interpret the atmosphere of multiple spaces within the faculty. The spaces were translated into texts describing the personal experience of every participant. Afterwards the texts were translated into a spatial object by the group, representing the common experience of the atmosphere.
