Writing pertains to architecture. Texts innovatively structure and articulate design experiments and built forms. Manifestos, analyses, blog entries, poems, project descriptions, comics, and utopian narratives are just a few examples of the myriad, expansive ways that architectural writing and publishing manifests in defining and developing architectural discourse. GAM.11 – "Archiscripts" opens up new perspectives on this expanding field and presents contributions that discuss the fundamental relationship between architecture and writing.
With contributions by Friedrich Achleitner, Ioanna Angelidou, Matej Banožić, Rebecca Damron, Mark Z.
