9781902902524: AA Words Two: Anti-Object?: The Dissolution and Disintegration of Architecture

An "object" is a work of architecture that is expressly designed for maximum isolation. While not exclusive to any particular architectural style, objects have been the organizing principle for many modernist and postmodernist works. Indeed, they might even be said to be the very strategy by which modernism succeeded in conquering the world. Why is objectification so widespread? In Anti-Object, Kengo Kuma argues it is because it shares the aims of the prevailing economic system. He suggests and illustrates his alternative to objectification through a discussion of the various stratagems of his work.
