Architectural Aesthetic Speculations, by Michael Jasper

Architectural Aesthetic Speculations, by Michael Jasper

  Architectural Aesthetic Speculations expands our understanding of the role of formal aesthetic criteria in twentieth-century artistic practices and reveals potentially transformative aspects in the art of architectural composition.

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’.

Performing Matter inquires about the material constitution of interiors as sites of political protest and ethical exchange.

Intravention, Durations, Effects: Notes of Expansive Sites and Relational Architectures, edited by Altes & Lieberman

Intravention, Durations, Effects: Notes of Expansive Sites and Relational Architectures, edited by Altes & Lieberman

Intravention, Durations, Effects defines architecture not as an ‘it’ but as a process; in that sense, architecture is a verb: to architect. Rather than refer to the (paradoxical) limiting of intervention’s ‘in-between’, it posits a new concept: intravention. Intra’s focus on the ‘within’ establishes intraventions as (already) a part of the spaces and times in which […]
