For many, architecture is a service whose goal is building; but for others, it is a field of intellectual research and method of inquiry. Edited by CCA chief curator Giovanna Borasi for the eponymous exhibition, The Other Architect is a timely and beautifully designed source book/catalog. The handsome volume contains reproductions of ephemera from over 20 research organizations developed by architects between 1968 and 2011. A wealth of ideas and approaches to archi- tectural thinking are neatly explicated in captions accompanying each section and augmented in brief essays by international architects, theorists, teachers, writers and curators. Among the organizations featured are Rem Koolhaus s AMO, Art Net, Global Tools, MIT s Architecture Machine Group, Eyal Weizman s Forensic Architecture, ARAU, Design-A-Thon, Delos Symposium, Anyone Corp and CIRCO. A must-have for anyone interested in the field of architecture, this publication describes the rich life of architecture beyond building as thinking process, method and research tool.
