Since indicating early in their careers that architecture must be rethought, Arakawa and Gins have remained a provocative and controversial presence in the field of architecture. The collection of essays in Architecture and Philosophy: New Perspectives on the Work of Arakawa & Madeline Gins showcases the far-reaching influence of their work on an array of disciplines, including aesthetics, linguistics, literary studies, and poetics. Scholars across three continents offer new insights into various aspects of the artists-architects’ work, placing particular focus on Architectural Body (2002).
