Confabulation is a drawing together through storytelling. Fundamental to our perception,

memory, and thought is the way we join fractured experiences to construct a

narrative. Confabulations: Storytelling in Architecture weaves together poetic ideas,

objects, and events and returns you to everyday experiences of life through juxtapositions

with dreams, fantasies, and hypotheticals. It follows the intellectual and creative

framework of architectural cosmopoesis developed and practiced by the distinguished

thinker, architect, and professor Dr. Marco Frascari, who thought deeply about the

role of storytelling in architecture.

Bringing together a collection of 24 essays from a diverse and respected group of

scholars, this book presents the convergence of architecture and storytelling across a

broad temporal, geographic, and cultural range. Beginning with an introduction framing

the topic, the book is organized along a continuous thread structured around four

key areas: architecture of stories, stories of architecture, stories of theory and practice

of stories. Beautifully illustrated throughout and including a 64-page full colour section,

Confabulations is an insightful investigation into architectural narratives.
