Chapters for an Imaginary Book About Architecture

It’s often a struggle to frame my terms of reference for thinking about architecture – or to articulate what it is that drives my interest. Sometimes clarity comes from unlikely sources. As I took a look at the top search terms for StrangeHarvest, a certain kind of clarity seemed to emerge.

Foam Party, Gummy Bear, Hell, Hostess, Gang Bang, Second World War, Velvet Underground, Story of O, How to Become an Architect, Lego, DDay.

In fact, they’d make pretty suitable chapters if StrangeHarvest ever turned into a book. (publishers – you can forward hefty advances to my work address).

Sex, horror, rock’n'roll, toys and war – a fairly accurate (if somewhat oblique) picture of contemporary architecture, I’m sure you’ll agree.
