He is author of over twenty books including The Eyes of the Skin, which has become a classic in architectural education. Encounters : Architectural Essays. Juhani Pallasmaa. This two volume set features the new edition of Juhani Pallasmaa's Encounters 1, together with his second volume in the same series, Encounters 2.
The essays in Encounters 1 range from considerations of identity and intention to technology and nature, from standardized systems of construction to phenomenological approaches to architecture. With references to anthropology, psychology, sociology and philosophy alongside examples drawn from literature, theatre, music and the visual arts, Pallasmaa delineates an architectural landscape of active, deep, humanistic cultural engagement. In Encounters 2 Pallasmaa draws from an intensive decade of teaching, lecturing and writing in the new millennium, as well as from a lifetime of critical observations on both architects and artists.
New intellectual territories are explored, focusing on concepts of 'vagueness' and 'atmosphere'. Importantly, a series of artistic and architectural 'portraits' are nested inside the thematic structure and amongst the more abstract contemplations. Peter MacKeith.

This is nothing short of a poetic calling
