Architectural discourse and practice are dominated by a false dichotomy between design and chance, and governed by the belief that the architect’s role is to defend against the indeterminate. In Architectures of Chance Yeoryia Manolopoulou challenges this position, arguing for the need to develop a more creative understanding of chance as aesthetic experience and critical method, and as a design practice in its own right. Examining the role of experimental chance across film, psychoanalysis, philosophy, fine art and performance, this is the first book to comprehensively discuss the idea of chance in architecture and bring a rich array of innovative practices of chance to the attention of architects. Wide-ranging and through a symbiotic interplay of drawing and text, Architectures of Chance makes illuminating reading for those interested in the process and experience of design, and the poetics and ethics of chance and space in the overlapping fields of architecture and the aleatoric arts.

About the Author:

Yeoryia Manolopoulou is Director of Architectural Research at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, and co-founder of the studio AY Architects.

Review:

'This book calls us to think about architectural research as an opportunity to pose original questions, to employ different media and techniques, to introduce interdisciplinary discourse, and to acknowledge the open-endedness of architecture. Altogether the book easily absorbs the reader into its wonderful explorations. It invites us to appreciate, acknowledge, learn to recode, and even at times appropriate chance'. --Arq
