Comments: Renegade Materialism


We've posted about Jonathan Hill's notion of an "illegal architect" and Elizabeth Grosz's "Architecture from the Outside" which move in a similar direction. Of course DeLanda's chapter on Geological History is a model here right?

And Ralph Rugoff has a nice (brief) essay about highways - "The Last Public Sculpture."

Yeah DeLanda as always is an influence, although I'd say his flow of materials differs quite a bit from the BLDGblog sort of flows discussed here. Hill and Grosz are both new to me, and both look quite interesting, if not quite as populist as I might like. Stewart Brand's _How Buildings Learn_ and perhaps even a little of Herando DeSoto belong in the mix as well...
