“It is increasingly clear that the work of Madeline Gins and Arakawa, both as architectural theorists and as philosophers of the body in its architectural surrounds is of considerable importance. The journal Interfaces has devoted a double issue to their work. Their latest book, Architectural Body, has been translated into several languages, including French.”

The Théorie de la lecture/ Lecture de la théorie seminar organized an international meeting devoted to Architectural Body where the philosophical, architectural and poetic aspects of the book are envisaged. The importance of the philosophical project that underlies it are celebrated, with the aim to enable all scholars interested in the work of Gins and Arakawa to gather and exchange views.
