The Empty Room: Fragmented thoughts on space


From the book back-cover:

Part aphorism and part manifesto, this book by Canadian architect Reza Aliabadi (RZLBD) references his ideas and thoughts about space. He suggests ‘the empty room’ as the very essence of architecture, and ‘the spatial experience’ as its highest mandate. Reza revisits architecture –not as the walls that enclose the space– but rather the space in-between the walls. What he calls an “anti-architecture” of invisible voids.

Where ingenious itineraries and openings and shootings can be orchestrated, Mr. Aliabadi has shown himself to be a high-order poet of volumes and voids.
