Book Description

Oct. 14 1998 3211830812 978-3211830819 1
"BorderLine”, the first publicationin the "RIEAbooks”-series, highlights a particularly relevant site in Europe, the town and harbor of Kraljevica, just south of Rijeka, Croatia, where failing ship-building industry and pollution from a large oil-refinery threaten both the ecology and the prospects of tourism. Drawing on the results of a workshop organized, funded and conducted by RIEAeuropa in the Frankopan Castle in Kraljevica, "Borderline” presents essays and projects by leading thinkers and architects addressing the contemporary problems such tumultuous and paradoxical regions have and create within rapidly evolving European and global landscapes. The phenomenon "Borderline” is pointed out in an unparalleld way in many essays for example by Lebbeus Woods, Gabriela Seifert (member of Formalhaut Architects), Manuel Delanda (cultural philosopher), Aleksandra Wagner (sociologist and psychoanalyst), Heinz Foerster (biophysicist), Ekkehard Rehfeld (architect) and architectural projects and conceptual proposals by Lebbeus Woods, Peter Cook, Will Alsop, Per Kartredt, Masihiko Yendo, Guy Lafranchi, etc.

Review

"... The publication ... is an example of borderline, a non-defined moment between disciplines which translates into a complete interdisciplinary outcome. The graphic design rises up against the traditional confines of the page, color and the hierarchy between text and images: it alternates images of the schemes and essays by scientists, philosophers, architects, psychoanalysts and sociologists ...” Domus 8/1999

4.0 out of 5 stars Lacking "a" visual appeal Jan. 25 2000
Format:Paperback
Although there are several interesting concepts there lacks a visual presention of workshops and the architects' present works and ideas. You become curious about the mention of the "Research Institute for Experimental Architecture", but it leaves the student wondering if such a school "a reallity" or a concept. I recomend this title if you are looking for a deeper meaning of architecture in regard to architectural space and are willing to except a new vision on life as we knew it.
