About this item

Confabulation is a drawing together through storytelling. Fundamental to our perception, memory and thought is the way we join fractured experiences to construct a narrative.Confabulations: Storytelling in Architecture weaves together poetic ideas, objects and events and returns you to everyday experiences of life through juxtapositions with dreams, fantasies and hypotheticals. It follows the intellectual and creative framework of architectural cosmopoesis developed and practiced by the distinguished thinker, architect and professor Dr. Marco Frascari, who thought deeply about the role of storytelling in architecture.

Bringing together a collection of 24 essays from a diverse and respected group of scholars, this book presents the convergence of architecture and storytelling across a broad temporal, geographic and cultural range. Beginning with an introduction framing the topic, the book is organized along a continuous thread structured around four key areas: architecture of stories, stories of architecture, stories of theory and practice of stories. Beautifully illustrated throughout and including a 32 page full colour section, Confabulations is an insightful investigation into architectural narratives.
