Imaginaries on Matter: Tools, Materials, Origins


Includes 7% VAT DE

Imaginaries on Matter – Tools, Materials, Origins,

promotes an innovative architectural research agenda that connects historical-cultural written research with digitally led material explorations.

The common thread is the notion of the material imagination, disclosed in the reverie, or material daydream, which challenges overly pragmatic or unreflective material choices within current architectural practice. In bonding our imagination directly with matter while also confronting new technologies, this book promotes strategies by which architects’ and builders’ future relations with materials can stay rooted within the deeper concerns of cultural meaning.

Imaginaries on Matter includes interviews with Aulets Arquitectes, Alibi Studio, Ensamble Studio, Geometria, Helen & Hard, KieranTimberlake, Supermanoeuvre, and Vandkunsten, as well as a postscript by David Leatherbarrow.
