Lars Spuybroek - The Architecture of Continuity
Essays and conversations with Rem Koolhaas and Cho Im Sik. The state of contemporary architecture is the product of a 150-year battle between the Polytechnic and the Fine Arts that has forced us into today’s stalemate, one in which architecture is caught in the gaping chasm between a materialistic high-tech and an expressionistic formalism. Nevertheless, Spuybroek’s aim is to mend such a rift by rethinking technology as part of our sensory apparatus, materiality as the realm of activity and agency, and structure as the product of genesis.
