Architecture Without Content
Edited by Kersten Geers, Joris Kritis, Jelena Pancevac, Giovanni Piovene, Dries Rodet, Andrea Zanderigo
This set of five reports collects the outcome of studios held between 2011 and 2013 at Columbia University, Accademia di Architettura Mendrisio, TU Graz and EPFL.
Architecture Without Content is architecture reduced to its very perimeter. Only the economy of the envelope determines the success of the building. Its radical frugality does not make it less critical. Economy of means is the weapon of choice to express its ideology. Architecture Without Content finds its roots in the Big Box. Architecture Without Content is too big to ignore.
This five-volume set consists of:
1 The Big Box
2 Contemporary Monuments
3 The Urban Paradox
4 Necessary Architecture
5 Places of Accumulation
