Aims and Scope
Writing has become an important component of the architectural practice. Architects experiment with new writing modalities in order to concretize architectural designs and built forms, or to generate and debate about guidelines and paradigms in architecture. Even literary texts like utopian stories, comics, or urban novels open for architecture imaginative space conceptions that go beyond mere geometrical and functional principles.
GAM Archiscripts is a collection of current positions on and analyses of forms of expression, and of practices in architectural writing and publishing.
With contributions from Pedro Gadanho, Jimenez Lai, Martino Stierli, Bernard Tschumi, WAI Think Tank, Julia Weber and many more.
