Description

"'What material forces lay beyond the realm of the visual shape, the physicality of space and human comprehension of it?" Lebbeus Woods, Editor of Space Out

This fascinating little book is a beautifully illustrated summary of Sotirios Kotoulasresearch into the architectural landscapesof the Arctic circle.

You may be thinking the North Pole is a strange place to conduct architectural research but Kotoulas experimental theories of architecture do not focus on construction, buildings or even physical shape.Instead they explore the invisible landscape of electromagnetic space.This neglected area in architectural theory relates not only to the spaces between built environments, but more importantly to the spaces beyond our physical perceptions.Kotoulas journey through the frozen tundra leads him to hisgoal, tochart the landscape above the arctic circle and its electromagnetic architecture, and therefore bring the invisible into the realm of the visible.

The book contains diagrams explaining his ideas as well as sketches and photographs of architectural models.Brought to us by the Research Institute for Experimental Architecture, this publication is a thought provoking and enjoyable read.
