BESIDES, HISTORY

What role can history play in contemporary architecture practice? Besides, History: Go Hasegawa, Kersten Geers, David Van Severen invites three architects to reread, redraw, translate, and appropriate from the past and from each other in order to construct relationships between and meanings out of a constellation of references. In their conversations, history becomes a tool that can be used in production, rather than just an object of study. The book features newly produced plans, sections, models, and perspectives for projects by Go Hasegawa and OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen, juxtaposed with reference material chosen from the CCA Collection. Introduced and annotated by the architects, these images form a visual manifesto for a unique relationship to history.
