Item description for Customize: IN-EX 02 review of peripheral architecture by IN-EX projects...
Everywhere we see evidence of standardisation, serial production of goods and services, uniformity across the globe, and, increasingly, a reaction against this trend in fields as diverse as product design, building components or urban development. This publication presents fascinating reports on strategies of rebellion discovered in cities such as Paris, Wuppertal, Seoul and London. Interviews with architects in Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Spain, France and the USA reveal a subversive attitude no longer prepared to accept uniform standards and globalisation to the detriment of individuality and idiosyncracy. IN-EX is a group of young Parisian architects (Louis Paillard, Anne-Franoise Jumeau, David Trottin and Emanuelle Marin-Trottin) who regularly organise architectural exhibitions and events.
