Description

This volume examines one year of research and pedagogy at the University of Virginia School of Architecture, engaged in the conditions of the built environment, relative to 3 states of Flux, Stasis and Crisis. The questions we ask are: What is the impact of design on the forces that shape our contemporary reality? To what extent do contingencies of time and place impact our practice, and in return how effective is our response in re-shaping the same contingencies? Contributions: Ghazal Abbasy-Asbagh, Inaki Alday, Robin Dripps, Rebecca Hora, Ryan Metcalf, Matthew Pinyan Published with University of Virginia School of Architecture
