Philippe Rahm is an architect based in Paris, who has received international recognition in the context of sustainability. Rahm’s work uniquely extends architecture’s ability to generate physiological and meteorological impacts. His places shift inhabitants’ mood, construct uncanny climates, or torque one’s perception of the body in space. Rahm is currently a visiting professor at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University and he represented Switzerland at the 8th Venice Architecture Biennale.
