Marcus White, Nano Langenheim: The Death of Urbanism – Transitions through Five Stages of Grief

Marcus White, Nano Langenheim: The Death of Urbanism – Transitions through Five Stages of Grief

Koolhaas pronounced urbanism dead in 1995. Since then, urban design has struggled to come to terms with this and other losses including environmental stability, affordable housing, design control, and urban amenity. This book explores urban design paradigms transitioning through a misappropriation of Kübler-Ross’ “five stages of grief” – from pro-sprawl ‘denial’, NIMBY ‘anger’, revisionist new […]
Hélène Frichot: Dirty Theory – Troubling Architecture

Hélène Frichot: Dirty Theory – Troubling Architecture

Dirty theory follows the dirt of material and conceptual relations from the midst of complex milieus. It messes with mixed disciplines, showing up in ethnography, in geography, in philosophy, and discovering a suitable habitat in architecture, design and the creative arts. Dirty theory disrupts a comfortable status quo, including our everyday modes of inhabitation and […]
Peter Bertram: Problem Invention – The Artistic Process in Architecture

This evocative and self-reflective book opens broader and pertinent questions about the physical nature of the architectural design process that will resonate with many of us who are prepared to work sympathetically with material. It is the conscious introduction of artistic experimentation in the architects material practice that can gradually enable intimacy, complexity and the […]
Alessandro Zambelli: Scandalous Space – Between Architecture and Archaeology

Alessandro Zambelli: Scandalous Space – Between Architecture and Archaeology

If architecture is a design-centred discipline which proceeds by suggesting propositional constructions then, Zambelli argues, archaeology also designs, but in the form of reconstructions. He proposes that whilst practitioners of architecture and archaeology generally purport to practice in future-facing and past-facing-modes respectively, elements of these disciplines also resemble one another. Zambelli speculates that whilst some […]
INFLECTION / 06 Originals

INFLECTION / 06 Originals

Architects are expected to create original ideas resulting in a unique, bespoke design. With the rise of Modern Architecture, originality became ingrained in perceptions of good design. As a result, originality has become a barometer against which we measure the value of design. However technology today allows for ease of replication and copies, thus originality […]
Regina Stephan (ed.): More than Bauhaus – The Architecture of the White City Tel Aviv

Regina Stephan (ed.): More than Bauhaus – The Architecture of the White City Tel Aviv

In 2003 Tel Aviv became a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Its amateur-scholar protagonist takes the reader on a labyrinthine journey into the world of research, with sources personified […]
Inflection 04 – Permanence

Inflection 04 – Permanence

    Permanence as an architectural concept is no longer restricted to the Vitruvian virtue of firmitas. To think about it in this sense today produces a schism: absolutism in a world of relativism. The fourth volume of Inflection extrapolates the permanent and the temporary not as opposing forces, but as a spectrum to be navigated […]

Inflection 03 – New Order

Inflection 03 – New Order

In the context of recent global political and economic disruption, architecture seems no longer equipped to address the demands of contemporary society as an isolated discipline. One solution offered in this crisis of relevance is the notion of transdisciplinarity characterised by the hybridisation of distinct disciplines. Transdisciplinarity is the New Order. Inflection Volume 3 explores […]

Rochus Hinkel (ed.): The Society of Interiors

The Society of Interiors discusses a variety of spatial practices which critique, reveal, and resist the economical logic of a neo-liberal market.

Constructing Atmospheres – Test-Sites for an Aesthetics of Joy, by Margit Brünner

Constructing Atmospheres – Test-Sites for an Aesthetics of Joy, by Margit Brünner

“This is a really wonderful book. Backing up her theory of an aesthetics of joy with Spinoza, Bergson, and Deleuze, Margit’s very strength is a kind of pragmatic phenomenology. By offering insights into her own practice, ways of creating and experiencing atmospheres is suggested to the reader, who as a result is obviously moved.“   […]

Access to Resources – An Urban Agenda

Access to Resources – An Urban Agenda

The urban environment is in a constant state of change, a constant state of ‘becoming’.
