Description - Architecturally Speaking by Alan Read

Architecturally Speaking is an international collection of essays by leading architects, artists and theorists of locality and space. New work by celebrated contributors including Marc Auge, Krzysztof Wodiczko, Anthony Vidler, Lebbeus Woods and Zaha Hadid is juxtaposed with seminal essays by Bernard Tschumi and Doreen Massey. Brand new work on city space and architecture by radical young companies such as MUF and performance artist Graeme Millar is joined by challenging new visions of orientation in the city by anthropologist Franco le Cecla and technologist William Mitchell. Together these essays build to reflect not only what it might mean to 'speak architecturally' but also the innate relations between the artist's and architect's work, how they are distinct, and in inspiring ways, how they might relate through questions of built form. The interdisciplinary is often evoked but in this collection the specificity of practices and their relation with everyday contexts announces innovative grounds for collaboration. This book will appeal to urbanists, geographers, artists, architects, cultural historians and theorists. Marc Auge, Franco La Cecla, Beatriz Colomina, Kenneth Frampton, Zaha Hadid, Oliver Kruse, Doreen Massey, Graeme Miller, William J. Mitchell, MUF architects, Anne M.
