Architecture: Sites of Reversible Destiny, Architectural Experiments After Auschwitz-Hiroshima

(Art+Design Monograph, Academy Editions, 1994)

"By means of architecture, or by means of what will be slightly but significantly different from what architecture has until now been, perception can be re-routed and new sites for the originating of a person can be found or formed."

- Arakawa and Madeline Gins

Architecture: Sites of Reversible Destiny begins with an essay by Australian philosopher Andrew Benjamin and showcases a selection of projects including Site of Reversible Destiny (Gifu,Japan), Reversible Destiny House I, The Bridge of Reversible Destiny (Epinal,France), and Double Horizon Public Housing (Berlin,Germany).
