Book Description Oro Editions, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This collection of kids bestiaries is a critique of Monster Contemporary Architecture. It is a reinterpretation of contemporary iconic forms and the contemplation of the future states of these masterpieces, or more fittingly, Monsterpieces. Two Harvard architecture graduates challenge their to minds un-learn architecture history. They speculate on the future state of post-occupancy of contemporary architectural icons, creating a retrospective of future archeological studies. A response and critique of iconic perFORMance -- the current architectural trend in competing for attention -- this fiction tells the story of building forms that do follow function. In this book, each eccentric form finds its justification in a speculative function, with surreal and dystopian connotations. The Casa da Musica is now a swimming pool, and Selfridge Birmingham is a prison for TV addicts, nothing more, nothing less. Bookseller Inventory # AAR9780981985732
