Productive Limits

Architects Gone Exploratory

For some time now, the credo for many young architects has been that architecture can be more than design proper. This publication records the momentum and speed of expansion through which its contributors went as they moved beyond any given and self-established confines of design-thinking.

For some time now, the credo for many young architects has been that architecture can be more than design proper, that its own mode of operation can be applied to other fields. Thus, many of our former peers have continued to do secondary Master's degrees and Doctorates after their graduation. They have taken the potential of architecture design into new directions in their careers. We understand this publication itself as a productive limit. It challenges the framework, which is all too often understood as "modernism" and tries to tease out some some of its diversity and contradiction, based on design and scholarly subtlety.
