about this item

A New Nature is a book about architecture as the organization of material. It unfolds an idea of working witharchitecture and urbanity as conditions rather than form. By experiencing cities and cultural landscapes asstates of change, the author investigates their degree of organization between order and chaos: "When wedesign and build buildings, naturally, we need to enter into an already existing context. Even so, many housessimply stand alone side by side, rather than identifying themselves with and becoming a part of the urbanitythat connects and creates cohesion in the culturally created - the new nature."The first part of the book develops an architectural language that connects material and meaning through ninestates between liquid and solid, in order to achieve a qualified and sustainable approach to understanding themodern city in its continuous transformation. The book's second part documents a number of projectproposals and realized works that illustrate the usage of this architectural idiom. Including precise drawingsand models, A New Nature introduces a new kind of spatial investigation.
