New York based architects Reinhold Martin and Kadambari Baxi investigate utopian 1960s architecture in this book version of their acclaimed multimedia installation. Entropia looks at three architectural projects where structures are variously disturbed until they break - physical illustrations of the collapsing boundaries between the public and the private. Entropia is a radical re-thinking of architectural logic, narrated by a series of diagrams, fragmented texts and computer generated images.
