Architecture Xenoculture by Evolo, Inc.
DescriptionXenoculture is a term coined by writer and philosopher Reza Negarestani that describes the need for embracing and exploring the unexpected, the alien. In this issue we borrow the idea and explore the realm of Architecture Xenoculture -- the work of architects and designers who detach from everything that architecture is supposed to be and look like, including preconceived forms and aesthetics, to look into new architectural and design possibilities. An architectural form that emerges from mathematical processes and new material explorations and propose something never before seen -- an aesthetic yet to be determined.
Some of the work showcased has been produced by leading architecture practitioners and academics worldwide including: Hernan Diaz Alonso, Servo, Francois Roche, Marc Fornes, Kokkugia, Zaha Hadid, Volkan Alkanoglu, and Rafael Lozano among others.
The iPad version of eVolo Magazine includes all the content of the printed edition and has been specifically designed for an intuitive navigation with interactive content and detailed photos, plans, sections, and elevations.
eVolo Magazine is the leading architecture and design journal focused on technological advances, sustainability, and innovative design for the 21st Century.
