Topographies of Contemporary Architecture
Translated by Graham Thompson


“"Following traces that are neither modern nor postmodern, Ignasi deSolà-Morales opens a deterritorialized territory harboring richpossibilities for architectural theory and practice. Philosophicallyastute and critically savvy, Differences resists the fashionableallure of nihilism by discerning creative resources circulating in thechaotic currents of contemporary culture." Mark C. Taylor, Preston S. Parish Professor of Humanities, Williams College”
“"Ignasi de Solà-Morales' term starting points perfectlycaptures the light and acute temperament of these essays. With the nimbleease of Deleuzean vectors, these writings start from contemporary practiceand move into fresh horizons of architectural thinking. At a time when mostarchitectural writing seems to fall within either the limits of journalismor the rigorous territories of academic research, this collection of textsdraws an unfrequented path of discourse, a topography that becomes aninvitation to approach architectural ideas through pleasures of reading." Xavier Costa, Head, Department of Architecture,Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona, Spain”
