Andreas Papadakis presents Theory + experimentation: an intellectual extravaganza
A. Papadakēs, Royal Institute of British Architects, Royal Academy of Arts (Great Britain), Whiteley's (Gallery : London, England)
Academy Editions, 1993 - Architecture - 419 pages
This is not only a source book of an international array of architects and ideas, an extravaganza of architectural theory and its realisation, but also contains extensive biographies of 35 architects. The fracturing of the barriers between theory and relaity is revealed as architecture moves from the studio and the realm of theory into street - the realm of practice, displaying an architecture of experimentation, invention and freedom. This book forms a rigorous up-to-the-minute view of architectural thinking today, and includes, inter alias, the work of Bernard Tschumi, Peter Eisenman, Morphosis, Coop Himmelblau, Daniel Libeskind and Itsuko Hasegawa.
