Approach documents the pedagogical, cultural, and intellectual life of the College of Architecture in the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis. Each thematic issue focuses on a particular aspect of the undergraduate architecture program, providing a snapshot of the educational approach, visual language, and experimental ethos that permeate the College. Issue 26, {Atmospheric} Approach, focuses on a series of studios that engage with aspects of atmosphere—from the material explorations of air and climate to the conceptual notion of ambience in architecture and urbanism. It presents a selection of projects generated by the second semester Core Studio titled Air: Flight of Icarus, the third semester Core Studio titled Rendering Light: A Single Theater with Two Characters, and a selection of Option Studios, all of which engaged various qualities of atmosphere in relation to site, building, and program.
