This project explores spatial, organizational, and material ingenuities born out of the forces and pressures of the contemporary city. It documents a cross-section of those strange inventions – often outrageous, sometimes humorous, but always extreme – with the ambition to establish a dictionary of ideas that can act as a sourcebook when everything else fails. The project is interested in how the dynamics of the modern metropolis influence architecture; or to put it more bluntly, how architecture’s demands for form can profit from its close proximity with the city’s will to formlessness.Document2
