No. 1 Veiled Works and Blurred Contects - Review

We had a very interesting discussion last Tuesday with Hugh's reading. As always, the coversation took varied and wonderful tangents away from the topic itself and some interesting ideas were discussed, from the relevance of the process of creating architecture to reflecting on our current cultural context. In the course of discussion some related texts came up: "The Megacity" Decoding the chaos of Lagos by George Packer and "Architecture Depends" by Jermey Till, sample chapters of this book can be found here and "The Yokohama Project: Foreign Office Architects" by Foreign Office Architects.
It was a very successful evening, and I would to thank Hugh Campbell for proposing a very interesting and provocative text.

To join the reading group please email, everybody is welcome.
