Being Here Now in Architecture

A book titled ‘Place, Time and Being in Japanese Architecture,’ that aims to enhance the ‘experience of existence,’ has been translated from English into Persian and published by the Iranian Academy of Arts, affiliated to the Presidential Office.
Written by English architect and expert in environmental design Kevin Nute, 58, an associate professor of architecture at the University of Oregon, it has been translated by Ardeshir Eshraqi, 48, who has translated books in art, architecture and history.
The Persian edition comes in 137 pages. It will be unveiled and offered for sale at the 30th Tehran International Book Fair, slated for May 3-13 at the ‘Shahr-e-Aftab’ (Sun City) Exhibition Center in south Tehran, according to the website of the academy honar.ac.ir.
The original work published in 2004 examines “built forms in architecture which, by actively celebrating a particular place, time or pattern of material being, seem able in a number of ways to enhance our experience of existence,” says the blurb of the book.
In addition to highlighting the trans-cultural human benefits of such environments, the book also illustrates generally applicable strategies for revealing these universal parameters in built forms. It suggests that greater use of such techniques could not only help sustain environmental and cultural identities against the homogenizing effects of globalization, but can also heighten our appreciation of the peculiar condition ‘being here now.’
