ABSTRACT: Using nearly 2,900 entries to a survey on ‘Extraordinary Architectural Experiences’ (EAEs) as a general background mapping the ‘subjective side’ of extraordinary atmospheres, this paper focuses on three paradigmatic (and sacred) buildings reported to induce such exceptional responses: the Chartres Cathedral, the Pantheon, and the chapel of Ronchamp. The purpose is to (a) Present the unique phenomenological signature of each building’s ambiance; and (b) Offer a comparative analysis between them and in relation to EAEs in general.
