" As the millennium drew to a close, architecture was the only arena left for revolutionary thinking . for it alone is capable, as a medium , of simultaneously encompassing and adressing concept and action in spacetime " . Continuing the collaboration of over 30 years between the New York based artists Arakawa and Madeline Gins, this book is a unique and predominently visual exploration into the architecture and its centrality to the project of the human self-knowledge and self-formation . carrying philosophical argument into the realm of construction . Documenting what it is actually like for a person to stand within a piece of architecture, this is the first systematic study of the role the body and bodily movement play in the forming of the world . Through a series of computer generated images of great beauty and intricacy, the reader is presented with ways of reworking the man-made world that is architecture . Going futher, the book suggests a revoluntionary re-invention of the planet and, by extension, the universe . Arakawa and Gins' vision is profoundly optimistic, one of an architecture that empowers instead of repressing humanity . architecture that tentatively opposes the monumentality which led to the acts of annihilation at Auschwitz and Hiroshima .

Acerca de


The New York based artists Arakawa and Madeline Gins have been collaborating on projects for over 30 years. This book is a predominantly visual exploration into architecture, carrying philosophical argument into the realm of construction. It asks: what is the nature of perception in images of architectural constructions and how does the human being relate to the surrounding space? This volume presents a systematic study of the role the body and bodily movements play in the forming of the world. Through a series of computer-generated images, the reader is taken on a visual journey. Arguing that architecture is central to human life, the book suggests a revolutionary reinventing of the planet and, by extension, the universe.
