Architectural body by Madeline Gins ( )
9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This manifesto is a verbal articulation of the authors' visionary theory of how the human body, architecture, and creativity define and sustain one another. This revolutionary work by artist-architects Arakawa and Madeline Gins demonstrates the inter-connectedness of innovative architectural design, the poetic process, and philosophical inquiry. Together, they have created an experimental and widely admired body of work--museum installations, landscape and park commissions, home and office designs, avant-garde films, poetry collections--that challenges traditional notions about the built envir
Architecture and philosophy new perspectives on the Work of Arakawa & Madeline Gins by Jean-Jacques Lecercle ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 883 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Architecture and Philosophy: New Perspectives on the Work of Arakawa and Madeline Gins is a collection of essays on the work of artist-architects Arakawa and Madeline Gins and in particular their book Architectural Body (2000). The essays approach their cutting edge and ambitious project to design 'an architecture against death' from various angles and disciplines including aesthetics, architecture, linguistics, philosophy. The papers retrace the place of Architectural Body in the aesthetic landscape of art at the turn of the 21st century and assess the utopian stance of their work
Making dying illegal : architecture against death : original to the 21st century by Shūsaku Arakawa ( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Making Dying Illegal is the latest installment of the ongoing Arakawa and Gins Reversible Destiny Project. By making the on-the-surface absurd proposal to legislate against dying, a strong political and satirical strategy is produced as a series of architectural principles that relate to Arakawa's buildings in Europe and Japan. Having read the book over many times in editing, we feel that MDI can become what the reader wants to make it. This flexible text smacks of Alice in Wonderland, Dada tract, and contemporary self-help political critique--a truly exciting text."--Publisher's website

Recording and documenting what it is actually like for a person to stand within a piece of architecture, this is the first systematic study of the role the body and bodily movement play in the forming of the world. Through a series of computer-generated images of great beauty and intricacy, the reader is presented with ways of reworking the man-made world that is architecture. Going further, the book suggests a revolutionary re-invention of the planet and, by extension, the universe
