This innovative edited collection charts the rise, fall and possible futures of the word primitive. The word primitive is fundamental to the discipline of architecture in the west, providing a convenient starting point for the many myths of architecture's origins. Since the almost legendary 1970s conference on the Primitive, with the advent of post-modernism and, in particular, post-colonialism, the word has fallen from favour in many disciplines. Despite this, architects continue to use the

A “partition” (score) is a special representational form. It is linked to instructions for action and looks forward rather than backward: to the planning of a forthcoming event. The “open score” goes one step further: it articulates the process of producing new realities and their indeterminacy. In his latest publication, Christopher Dell sketches an “open-ended city score.” The term does not refer to a representation of urban sound texture, nor is the city interpreted in an

This book provides an extended exploration of the multimodal analysis of spatial (three-dimensional) texts of the built environment, culminating in a holistic approach termed Spatial Discourse Analysis (SpDA).

Cutting Matta-Clark: The Anarchitecture Investigation is a detective story.

Of all the shows at the fabled 112 Greene Street space―an epicenter of New York’s downtown art scene in the 1970s―the Anarchitecture Group show of March 1974 is a constant reference point in discussion, despite the almost complete lack of

This glossary is based on the premise that readers cannot understand the culture of a people unless they have a grasp of the nuances and hidden meanings of the language. The authors bring together in one volume the terminologies that are used by southern Africa's rural builders. The terminology used by indigenous

The development of the countryside has generally been conceived of from an urban perspective: the country as producer of food for the urban population, as development area, or as recreational area. Even the development and protection of nature in the countryside are undertaken in service of city dwellers, so that they can experience scenic beauty as a compensation for the pernicious urban life. Oase No. 63 questions existing approaches which view the countryside as the empty or “negative”

This book is a collection of essays at the intersection of architecture and climate change. Neither a collective lament nor an inventory of architectural responses, the essays consider cultural values ascribed to climate and ask how climate reflects our conception of what architecture is and does. Which materials and conceptual infrastructures render climate legible, knowable, and actionable, and what are their spatial implications? How do these interrelated questions offer new vantage points
