Object Models Worlds (Abridged)
TWA Pocketbook #1
In this pocketbook—part lecture transcription, part crib sheet, part manifesto—Tom Wiscombe challenges the discipline of architecture to reimagine its place in contemporary culture. Advocating for active engagement with the mystery and wonder of the world rather than passive access to the status quo, Objects Models Worlds: Abridged is a call to action. Wiscombe offers a humbler assessment of human beings in the broader ecology of things while simultaneously asserting a vastly diversified array of architectural concerns, techniques, and elements. The breathtaking designs, the depth of the theoretical intentions, and the humor and clarity with which the concerns of our time are articulated make this book an essential reference for all who are interested in the future of architecture.
