About this title


Providing a source of vision for the revitalisation of ground and envelope as spatial elements that can inform the search for embedded locally specific architectures, this book collects essays and projects that each contributes a particular element to what might constitute an integrated and richly nuanced approach to spatial organisation. Projects include:

  • RCR Arquitectes: Marquee at Les Cols Restaurant, Olot, Girona, Spain
  • Weiss / Manfredi; Seattle Art Museum: Olympic Sculpture Park, Seattle, Washington, USA
  • Peter Eisenman; City of Culture of Galicia, Santiago de Compostela, Spain

With an abundance of built and un-built key projects available, it is now possible to outline the contours of a new discourse. This book initiates a new beginning in this direction so that architecture can partake in the creation of heterogeneous space and culturally, socially and environmentally sustainable built environments.
