<nettime-ann> [pub] ORTLOS - Architecture of the NetWORKS


.

hi,

The brand new book by ORTLOS architects is available now. After two years
of
hard work just on the book (plus the projects of course :) it is out of
print and looks really great. In the book we try to pronounce a new
approach
to architecture and design praxis nowadays, by interdisciplinary working
methods and with own developed tools for the creative networked
collaboration.
 

ORTLOS - Architecture of the NetWORKS

By ORTLOS architects und David Carson, foreword by Thom Mayne.
English. Hatje Cantz Publishers, Stuttgart 2005.
ISBN 3-7757-1652-1
216 pp., color ills. throughout

Ortlos is German for "placeless." It is also the appropriate designation
for
a virtual architectural office and discussion forum dealing with
experimental architecture, urban planning, media theory, art
installations,
and product and interface design. Architects, web designers, media
theorists, media artists, and information-technology specialists from
around
the world work together off-site, independent of a specific workplace.
The
conceptual and design process goes on in collaboration in a trans-local
environment, created out of a network of virtually combined workplaces.
ORTLOS architects characterize the "end of architecture" in a way that
is
comparable to American graphic-design legend David Carson's radical
description of the "end of the print medium." This unique publication,
the
result of an unusual creative collaboration between ORTLOS architects
and
Carson, presents a dozen projects, dating from 2000 to 2003.
