ANTI—Journey to Architecture: Dialogue of work

This is the last of the serialized installments of the book documenting the journey made by Raimund Abraham and me in October of 2007.

Raimund and I agreed that the most telling way we spoke to each other was in our work. So, we devoted a closing section of ANTI to a Dialogue of Work, comprised of alternating double-spreads between his projects and mine. This is presented below.

An index of works is at the end.
