Young Architects 5: Inhabiting Identity
"How have faster modes of communication and travel caused us to rethink traditional notions of place and identity? Must we inhabit architecture in order to identify ourselves, or do new notions of identity render architecture inconsequential? Inhabiting Identity challenges the notion of habitation as fixed and defined and seeks to engage its dynamic, transformative, and mutable qualities." "Inhabiting Identity exhibits the work of six up-and-coming architects who have investigated these issues. Their work not only challenges our sense of habitation but teaches us to think beyond the normal and the mundane. By making use of unusual materials while maintaining creative ideas, they investigate the role of modern technology in our daily lives."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
