Synopsis: Groundscapes explores the 'comeback' of the idea of the ground onto the scene of contemporary architecture. With the decline of heroic modernism in the late 1960s a new generation of architects eager to discover this forbidden land initiated a reterritorialisation of architecture which continues today. As a consequence, we can understand built space and ground space no longer as opposites but as equal elements of the architectural body.

About the Author: Ilka Ruby is an architect and Andreas Ruby is an architectural critic and theorist. Since founding their office textbild in 2001 they have been committed to a cultural engineering of the discourse on contemporary architecture, writing texts, designing books, curating exhibitions, consulting architects and organising architectural symposia for a wide array of cultural and corporate clients. Their publications include Images. A Picture Book of Architecture (Prestel, 2004), The Challenge of Suburbia (Wiley-Academy, 2004) and Hans Scharoun: Haus Moeller (Walther Koenig, 2004). They have been teaching architecture at a variety of universities in Europe. Currently they are visiting critics at Cornell University.
