Mediating Architecture (Peter Staub & Theo Lorenz ed.):
The book explores the architect’s shift from being a mere designer and builder to acting as a mediator within a much larger network of expertise. This mediation takes place on multiple levels – within the building industry, between public, clients and designers, and between the actual design and its environment. To achieve this, the field of work, the tools of design and the representation of architects need to develop. The architect has to design the design process itself. A series of essays reflect this methodology from the multi-disciplinary perspectives of architecture, urban design, landscape design and philosophy.
