A chance to read then discuss books about architecture and related subjects. Can be fact or fiction, specialist architectural theory best avoided!
Each month to have two books, which you’re encouraged to read beforehand, to make the discussion as interesting as possible.
J G Ballard – “Concrete Island” (a satirical novel about an architect who crashes his car and is trapped on an island formed between motorways)
Rem Koolhaas – “Delirious New York” (Koolhaas’ alternative urban history of the city – work of genius, or entertaining nonsense?).
Both available from Amazon and elsewhere.
