Architecture and Field/Work

“Positioned at a point of interchange between the disciplines of architecture and anthropology, this book is the first to identify and to critique key terms, techniques, methodologies and habits comprising our understanding of fieldwork in architecture. In the wider context of interdisciplinary spatial practice, this book explores the potential of the term ‘field’ and offers insight into how future research in architectural design and other practice‐led disciplines might make productive links between academia and design professions.

Essays by established and emerging international scholars are arranged into three parts introduced by the editors, which move from Practices to Site to Techniques, and are interspersed with Field Notes by experienced voices: Andrea Kahn (New York), Alan Dein (London) and Can Altay (Istanbul) with an Afterword by Jane Rendell (London). For academics and reflective practitioners in architecture, art history, theory, landscape and urbanism, this book offers a reassessment of methodologies, forms of aesthetic production and creative activity in architectural design, theory, practice.“
