About this product
- DescriptionArchitecture is conventionally seen as being synymous with building. In contrast, this book introduces and defines a new category - the unbuildable. The unbuildable involves projects that are t just unbuilt, but cant be built. This distinct form of architectural project has an important and often surprising role in architectural discourse, working t in opposition to the buildable, but frequently complementing it. Using well-kwn examples of early Soviet architecture - Tatlin's Tower in particular - Nerma Cridge demonstrates the relevance of the unbuildable, how it relates to current tions of seriality, copying and reproduction, and its implications for contemporary practice and discourse in the computational age. At the same time it offers a fresh view of our preconceptions and expectations of early Soviet architecture and the Constructivist Movement.
