Writingplace: Investigations in Architecture and Literature
Edited by Klaske Havik, Susana Oliveira, Mark Proosten, Jorge Mejía Hernández, Mike Schäfer.
Writingplace marks an emerging discussion on the relationship of literature and architecture. The book, which grows out of an online platform of the same name, offers reflections on the role played by written language as a crucial element of architecture culture, and on the potential of using literary methods in architectural and urban research, education and design.
For readers interested in the transdisciplinary encounters between architecture and literature, this volume offers both theoretical contributions that address concepts such as narrative and literary imagination, and contemporary explorations regarding the practical operability of literary approaches.
Writingplace includes contributions by international experts approaching this developing field from both literary and architectural backgrounds, including Bart Keunen, Alberto Pérez-Gómez, Wim van den Bergh, Klaske Havik, Katja Grillner and Wim Cuyvers.
