We take a look at a new book exploring the world of architecture by Rasmus Waern & Gert Wingardh.

We take a look at 'What is Architecture? And 100 Other Questions' (Laurence King, 2015) by Rasmus Waern & Gert Wingardh.

WHAT'S IT ABOUT?

The opening pages introduce the question ‘What is the essence of architecture?’. The book tries to answer this along with, as the title suggests, a 100 other answers addressing a whole range of different issues. The questions span from the theory and history of architecture to posing more interesting questions, such as ‘Is Dubai a city?’ and ‘Can you own a view?’.
