About this Item

Because we live in an environment so difficult to define or even see, we need architecture to make sense of it. Confronted by a world afflicted by sprawl, Aaron Betsky challenges us to see architecture as a way of understanding, experimenting with and changing our physical reality. He argues passionately for a new space of freedom and imagination, proposing an entirely new way of undoing the indiscriminate, sometimes disorderly world we have so carelessly constructed. Architecture Must Burn shows us an architecture of unfolding, clothing and collage. Mixing current theories about spatiality, technology, and literature, the 28 manifestos are introduced by Erik Adigard's haunting and contorted imagery, magnifying the complex layers of meaning at the heart of the book's red-hot core. Certain to become a cult classic, Architecture Must Burn is not just about architecture, it is about how we live in the world. Bookseller Inventory # 001440

Synopsis:

Architecture must burn. It must stir the senses. Why? Because we live in an environment so difficult to define or even see, we need architecture to make sense of it. Confronted by a world afflicted by sprawl, Aaron Betsky challenges us to see architecture as a way of understanding, experimenting with and changing our physical reality. He argues passionately for a new space of freedom and imagination, proposing an entirely new way of undoing the indiscriminate, sometimes disorderly world we have so carelessly constructed.

Architecture Must Burn shows us an architecture of unfolding, clothing and collage. Mixing current theories about spatiality, technology, and literature, the 28 manifestos are introduced by Erik Adigard's haunting and contorted imagery, magnifying the complex layers of meaning at the heart of the book's red-hot core. Certain to become a cult classic, Architecture Must Burn is not just about architecture, it is about how we live in the world.
