    the recent challenges of environmental science and activism have not been met by the architectural profession with innovative intellectual or imaginative propositions. and yet, it is the task of the design disciplines to discover new ways of understanding the human relationship to the environment, even ones that leave much of its past conventions behind. “ecological thinking” represents one such radical foundational departure, but it is one that should not be seen as foreign to the design disciplines, for it has everything to do with how forms are made and how they arrive in our midst.

  • far from equilibrum
    2008

    actar: sanford KWINTER ponders the complex encounters between technology, culture, and architecture. critical essays offer an extended meditation on infrastructure, war, computation, mechanical and material intelligence, and other multivariate facets of modernity. far-reaching in scope, far from equilibrium amounts to a performance in writing of what kwinter describes as radical anamnesis: the imagination’s escape from the sterile logic of what is. compiling over a decade of architectural and critical writings, many published here for the first time, far from equilibrium is essential reading for anyone interested in the state of architecture and criticism today. a primer for (re)thinking design in the 21st century.
