Autotelic Architect : Changing world, changing practice, Hardback Book

Autotelic Architect : Changing world, changing practice Hardback


Autotelic Architect explores how movements towards more self-initiated projects, greater collaboration and design activism have changed how architects and designers are practicing, as well as the kinds of projects they are working on.

Similar to the autotelic self that transforms potential problems into enjoyable challenges, the `Autotelic Architect' does not avoid societal changes, but instead learns to harness their creative potential.

Using new research and case studies from past and present, the author analyses the educational and professional implications of operating as a `non-conventional' progressive participatory design practice.

Drawing on a range of global case studies of pioneering architects in the field, she reflects upon current and future trends at local, national and international level, and additionally examines marketing and practical issues for architects.

Illustrated with more than 30 black and white images, this is a compelling read for any practicing architect.
