BUILDINGS AND ALMOST BUILDINGS: NARCHITECTS

Written by Hoang, Mimi
Buildings and Almost Buildings explores the work of nARCHITECTS as a single project - an anti-monograph with a subtle manifesto about the open- ended, incomplete, and ambiguous in architecture. Is architecture inherently complete? Or is it a state of incompletion and seeming inadequacy that incites us to imagine architecture as an armature for an ever-changing daily life?

KASPER AKHOJ - WELCOME (TO THE TEKNIVAL) E-1027 BY EILEEN GRAY

For this book, Danish artist and photographer Kasper Akhøj documented the ongoing restoration of E-1027, Eileen Grays modernist villa in France. Based on photographs taken by Gray which were first published in 1929, Akhøjs photographs are a kind of remake, recreating the perspective and composition of the originals. During several visits to the villa between 2009 and 2017, he produced up to six versions of each of Grays images, but only included one of them here. The overlap of chronologies emphasises the restoration process and references the fascinating influence of a succession of occupants. With essays by Beatriz Colomina and Amy Zion, plus an interview with Akhøj.
