THE OTHER ARCHITECT: ANOTHER WAY OF BUILDING ARCHITECTURE. Ed. by Giovanna Borasi. Canadian Center for Architecture, Montreal, 2016. Published by Spector Books, Leipzig. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 420 pp. 30 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783959050401 In English.
Publisher's description: For many, architecture is a service whose goal is building; but for others, it is a field of intellectual research and method of inquiry. Edited by CCA chief curator Giovanna Borasi for the eponymous exhibition, The Other Architect is a timely and beautifully designed source book/catalog. The handsome volume contains reproductions of ephemera from over 20 research organizations developed by architects between 1968 and 2011. A wealth of ideas and approaches to architectural thinking are neatly explicated in captions accompanying each section and augmented in brief essays by international architects, theorists, teachers, writers and curators. Among the organizations featured are Rem Koolhaus's AMO, Art Net, Global Tools, MIT's Architecture Machine Group, Eyal Weizman's Forensic Architecture, ARAU, Design-A-Thon, Delos Symposium, Anyone Corp and CIRCO. A must-have for anyone interested in the field of architecture, this publication describes the rich life of architecture beyond building -- as thinking process, method and research tool.
