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 […]
A Clinic for the Exhausted: In Search of an Antipodean Vitality – Edmond & Corrigan and an Itinerant Architecture by Michael Spooner

A Clinic for the Exhausted: In Search of an Antipodean Vitality – Edmond & Corrigan and an Itinerant Architecture by Michael Spooner

A Clinic for the Exhausted commences from a vision of a landmark Australian architectural icon, RMIT University Building 8 by Edmond & Corrigan, apprehended as an ocean liner taking leave of its concrete moorings.

Against this background architects, urban planners, designers and other professions exchanged methods, undertook research and developed concepts during a program that took place at […]
Inconclusive Evidence: Spatial Gender Politics at Strawberry Hill 1747-58 by Jan Hietala

Inconclusive Evidence: Spatial Gender Politics at Strawberry Hill 1747-58 by Jan Hietala

Inconclusive Evidence is a semiotic study of letters, drawings, sketches and paintings related to Strawberry Hill in Twickenham, Middlesex, one of the most studied villas of all time and regarded as a forerunner to the Gothic revival in architecture. Horace Walpole assembled a ‘Committee of Taste’ to assist him in its construction, and as a result […]
Death Keeps Me Awake: Joseph Beuys and Rudolf Steiner – Foundations of their Thought, by Wolfgang Zumdick

Death Keeps Me Awake: Joseph Beuys and Rudolf Steiner – Foundations of their Thought, by Wolfgang Zumdick

Few people are indifferent to Joseph Beuys and Rudolf Steiner – although it is decades since their death. One is a political clown and artistic agitator, the other an eccentric and esoteric philosopher. This is a judgement that many people still hold fast. Death Keeps Me Awake does not only show the intimate connection between Joseph Beuys’ […]
