About this title

Synopsis:

A New Nature is a book about architecture as the organization of material. It unfolds an idea of working with
architecture and urbanity as conditions rather than form. By experiencing cities and cultural landscapes as
states of change, the author investigates their degree of organization between order and chaos: “When we
design and build buildings, naturally, we need to enter into an already existing context. Even so, many houses
simply stand alone side by side, rather than identifying themselves with and becoming a part of the urbanity
that connects and creates cohesion in the culturally created – the new nature.”
The first part of the book develops an architectural language that connects material and meaning through nine
states between liquid and solid, in order to achieve a qualified and sustainable approach to understanding the
modern city in its continuous transformation. The book’s second part documents a number of project
proposals and realized works that illustrate the usage of this architectural idiom. Including precise drawings
and models, A New Nature introduces a new kind of spatial investigation.
