Frankfurt-based architect Nikolaus Hirsch presents theoretical essays, dialogues on collaborative projects and reflections on his own work, exploring the critical transformations of contemporary space and its effects on spatial practice. In this thought-provoking offering from the White Pocket Book series, the winner of the 2002 World Architecture Award looks at disciplines such as visual and performative arts and questions the notions of “boundary”: as a phenomenon of social and political discourse; a conflict between collaboration and authorship; a physical limitation that negotiates between stable and unstable conditions. Hirsch’s internationally acclaimed work includes the Dresden Synagogue, the Hinzert Document Center and a research project for the European Kunsthalle in Cologne. His work has been shown in such exhibitions as New German Architecture in Berlin, Utopia Station at the Venice Biennale and Can Buildings Curate? at AA London/Storefront Gallery in New York.
