AWC 17 – METROPOLITAN ARCHITECTURE
The seventeenth iteration of Architecture Without Content is the second attempt to define a possible canon of architecture. After Roman Architecture, whose interest was the entire territory of urbanisation (with the city proper and the country- side proper as its extreme conditions) the focus shifted to Metropolitan Architecture—simultaneously the product and the producer of the two extremes. Metropolitan Architecture is the embodiment of the metropolis, an urban environment which has the ambition of becoming a world in itself, absorbing and swallowing different ecologies. Metropolitan Architecture embraces this condition and tends to reproduce the overwhelming diversity of the metropolis in itself.
