Produktbeschreibung
Take a theoretical approach to architecture with The Autopoiesisof Architecture, which presents the topic as a discipline withits own unique logic. Architecture's conception of itself isaddressed as well as its development within wider contemporarysociety. Author Patrik Schumacher offers innovative treatment thatenriches architectural theory with a coordinated arsenal ofconcepts facilitating both detailed analysis and insightfulcomparisons with other domains, such as art, science and politics.He explores how the various modes of communication comprisingarchitecture depend upon each other, combine, and form a uniquesubsystem of society that co-evolves with other importantautopoietic subsystems like art, science, politics and theeconomy. The first of two volumes that together present a comprehensiveaccount of architecture's autopoiesis, this book elaborates thetheory of architecture?s autopoeisis in 8 parts, 50 sections and200 chapters. Each of the 50 sections poses a thesis drawing acentral message from the insights articulated within the respectivesection. The 200 chapters are gathering and sorting the accumulatedintelligence of the discipline according to the new conceptualframework adopted, in order to catalyze and elaborate the newformulations and insights that are then encapsulated in the theses.However, while the theoretical work in the text of the chaptersrelies on the rigorous build up of a new theoretical language, thetheses are written in ordinary language ? with the theoreticalconcepts placed in brackets. The full list of the 50 theses affordsa convenient summary printed as appendix at the end of thebook. The second volume completes the analysis of the discourse andfurther proposes a new agenda for contemporary architecture inresponse to the challenges and opportunities that confrontarchitectural design within the context of current societal andtechnological developments.

Autorenporträt
Patrik Schumacher is partner at Zaha Hadid Architects and founding director of the Design Research Laboratory (DRL) at the Architectural Association (AA) in London. He studied philosophy and architecture in Bonn, London and Stuttgart, where he received his architectural Diploma in 1990. In 1996 he founded the AADRL with Brett Steele, and continues to serve as one of its directors. In 1999 he completed his PhD at the Institute for Cultural Science, Klagenfurt University. Patrik Schumacher joined Zaha Hadid in 1988. Since then Zaha Hadid Architects has expanded from a small studio to a global ???rm employing over 300 architects. Patrik Schumacher's career continues to integrate practice and theory. His contribution to the discourse of contemporary architecture is also evident in his prior writings, such as Digital Hadid, 2004, as well as in his curatorial work for exhibitions, such as Latent Utopias, Graz, 2002. His essays are available on www.patrikschumacher.com.
