Respect for the discipline is eventually not founded on intention or on an agenda. This simple insight invokes the awkwardness of so many architectural exhibitions and publications, which cannot but represent an intention or interpretation over the real thing. And it explains why more or less all architectural exhibitions fail to prove their point to anyone outside the discourse of architecture, or to a large group of people who would rather love or hate architecture than make a lengthy effort to understand it."<br></p> https://archinect.com/news/article/150095829/archinect-outpost-to-host-launch-of-neil-denari-s-highly-anticipated-new-monograph-massx Archinect Outpost to host launch of Neil Denari's highly anticipated new monograph MASSX Shane Reiner-Roth 2018-11-15T12:26:00-05:00 >2018-11-15T13:29:41-05:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/f7/f77234b7b70617799b85245bc54a0d9e.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><p>Join us in celebrating MASSX, the latest monograph from <a href="https://archinect.com/nmda" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Neil M.
