Description

Architects' Journeys brings together a cross section of contemporary architects, historians and theorists to reconsider the role that travel has played in architectural practice from the early twentieth century to the present. Looking beyond the model of enlightened tourism based on the legacy of the Grand Tour, the book's contributors investigate travel as a form of displacement, prefiguring the emergence of the figure of the global architect in the late twentieth century. Designed by the award-winning design studio Project Projects, the book features writings by an international group of innovative thinkers in the field including Rubén A. Alcolea, Beatriz Colomina, Kenneth Frampton, Héctor García-Diego, Carlos Labarta, José Angel Medina, Juan Miguel Otxotorena, Spyros Papapetros, José Manuel Pozo, Galia Solomonoff, Jorge Tárrago and Mark Wigley.
