Archiprint 18 – Splendid Isolation

Archiprint 18, Splendid Isolation, explores the change in architectural landscape brought about by a driving force of globalization and urbanization. This theme is explored through the analysis of three case studies, which are dissected through a close reading of three conflicting, though extremely pertinent architectural texts: Charles Jencks’ The Death of Modern Architecture, Pieter Eisenman’s The End of the Classical: the End of the Beginning, the End of the End and Pier Vittori Aureli’s The possibility of an Absolute architecture.
