ECO-TEC: Architecture of the In-Between proposes a fusion between ecology and technology that goes beyond accepted theories of sustainability and suggests a new role for architecture. It serves to reassess our collective ecological and technological illiteracy by placing a priority on learning from as well as for nature.
This collection of essays stems from a series of international multidisciplinary forums and workshops sponsored by StoreFront for Art and Architecture. It brings together biologists, physicists, geologists, artists, architects, and social critics in order to generate site-specific projects and writings. Topics under consideration range from the role of nanotechnology in architecture to the renovation of an abandoned asbestos factory. Essays in the collection include "The Object of Ecosophy" by Felix Guattari, "The Nonlinear Development of Cities" by Manuel DeLanda, "Smog Monster: Environmental Notes from the Pac-Rim" by Neil Denari, "Recycling Recycling" by Mark Wigley, and "Topography of an Island City" by Jean Gardner. Editor Amerigo Marras is an architect and curator who has organized various cultural events since 1972. He holds degrees from the University of Rome and the University of Toronto, and has studied with Marshall McLuhan and worked with Joseph Beuys.
ECO-TEC is the next book in our series from StoreFront for Art and Architecture, following Suburban Discipline and Mortal City.
