Item description for Operative Optimism by Manuel Gausa Federico Soriano...

A compilation of the most recent exploits of European architecture, Operative Optimism is a sort of optimist's manifesto on the possibilities and challenges of present-day architecture. Influenced by a new digital context, these architects reconsider their work in different ways but always with a firm belief in the material results of their profession. Six chapters explore the subject: "Synthetic Logic" offers concise and direct ways to provide solutions to a given project. "Direct Logic" offers unbiased and uninhibited attitudes. "Productive Logic" explores new forms of materializing the potentials of manufacturing. "Interactive Logic" looks at the new possible relations between edifice, matter, and nature. "Processing Logic" explores projects that consider information as a means of providing shape. "Genetic Logic" examines design in accordance with dynamic and evolutionary systems. With contributions by FOA, MVRDV, UN Studio, Actar Arquitectura, V. Guallart, D. Lewis, F. Roche, F. Soriano, NOMAD, Neutelings & Riedijk, Njiric + Njiric, Lacaton & Vassal, W. Mller, NOX, Abalos & Herreros, NL Architects, Pariphariques, and IaN+.
