Michael Hays writes an account of the "late avant-garde" as an structure systematically twisting again on itself, thinking about its personal ancient prestige, and intentionally exploring architecture's representational percentages correct as much as their absolute limits. In shut readings of the brooding, depression silence of Aldo Rossi, the significantly reductive "decompositions" and archaeologies of Peter Eisenman, the carnivalesque excesses of John Hejduk, and the "cinegrammatic" delirium of Bernard Tschumi, Hays narrates the tale of structure confronting its personal obstacles with gadgets of ever extra reflexivity, trouble, and intransigence.

It takes structure because the item of its personal mirrored image, which in flip produces an unrelenting wish. utilizing the instruments of serious concept including the constitution of Lacan's triad imaginary-symbolic-real, Hays constructs a thought of architectural wish that's traditionally particular and but units the phrases and the demanding situations of all next architectural perform, together with today's.
