9780969616900: Pig City Model Farm: A Handbook on Architecture and Agriculture

"If we could suddenly see this arranged order as it will be seen in its full functioning, it is not to be doubted that many of the Civilized would be struck dead by the violence of their ecstasy."

PIG CITY MODEL FARM, a disturbing but amusing book about architecture, agriculture, and utopia. About instrumental thinking and rational method versus irony and doubt as anti-method. About copronomy and building design, model farms, country-life, class status in the Chinese countryside, Ultra-Sweet Pignectar, an architect's first sexual experience, Charles Fourier, Marcel Duchamp, paranoia, poisonous fruit, and how things become their opposite.

About the Author:

Rob Kovitz is creator, designer, and producer of Treyf Books - unconventional creative projects in book form, sort of story-picture books for people who've had enough Chicken Soup for the Soul. Treyf Books are cooked up using texts and images collected from various sources that are recombined through a process of highly subjective editing, ordering, and juxtaposition into wry, enigmatic, disquieting, funny and thought-provoking works of imagination.

Review:

A virtuosity of manipulation intent on confounding all elevating sentiments. Kovitz has a real talent at digging up slops. -- Ken Hayes, The Splinter

I like it very much. -- Cedric Price, AA Files
