Additional Information

Born out of the drawingbuilding.org online archive, Architectural Inventions presents a stunning visual study of impossible or speculative structures that exist only on paper. Soliciting the work of architects, designers, and artists of renown—as well as emerging talents from all over the world—Maximilian Goldfarb and Matt Bua have gathered an array of works that convey architectural alternatives, by products, expansions, or critiques of our inhabited environments. Highlighting visions that exist outside of established channels of production and conventions of design, Architectural Inventions showcases a multiplicity in concept and vision, fantasy and innovation.

Wonderful.
How we interact with our world is determined by the space that we inhabit. The space we inhabit in the future is determined by what we build today.

It is the seeds of this future world that Matt Bua and Maximilian Goldfarb are planting with their extraordinary book Architectural Inventions: Visionary Drawings.

There is much fertile ground from both Bua and Goldfarb for these seeds to sprout. Matt has been developing improvised and spontaneous buildings on his wooded lot in the Catskill mountains, a project he calls b-home, and something I profiled two years back in my book Tales from the Sustainable Underground. He works with whomever will come up, artists from New York and nearby and far away, using a... Read more
Matt Bua and Max Goldfarb have assembled a long overdue collection of drawings that investigate imaginary architecture that looks at a range of topics - TechnoSustainability, Radical Habitats, Microcommnities, Forts, etc. This collection contains a cross-section of drawing styles that range from child-like outsider inspired doodles to sophisticated futuristic technical renderings. Supported by over 20 writings (also conventional to investigative in approach) this book offers a contemporary imaginary format for the reader to reevaluate topics such as utility, mobility, adaptation, worship (to mention a few). Artists included are also diverse in practice and application (e.g., Acconci Studio to SIMPARCH to Jesse Bercowetz). This survey is an oddly assembled breath of fresh air. London's Laurence King Publishing Ltd. has assembled a finely produced monograph that will insight the reader to rethink the current manner people contemplate the structures that define their lives and...
