Paul Virilio is an innovative figure in the study of architecture, space, and the city. Virilio for Architects primes readers for their first encounter with his crucial texts on some of the vital theoretical debates of the twenty-first century, including:

Oblique Architecture and Bunker ArcheologyCritical Space and the Overexposed City The Ultracity and Very High BuildingsGrey Ecology and Global Hypermovement

In exploring Virilio's most important architectural ideas and their impact, John Armitage traces his engagement with other key architectural and scientific thinkers such as Claude Parent, Benoit B. Mandelbrot, and Bernard Tschumi. Virilio for Architects allows students, researchers, and non-academic readers to connect with Virilio's distinctive architectural theories, critical studies, and fresh ideas.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'An exciting ride on the Virilian rollercoaster, where even concrete bunkers (almost) 'melt into air'. This book marks an important advance - written by someone who, like Virilio himself, is sensitive to both the aesthetic and the ethical implications of his work.' - Jonathan Hale, Reader in Architectural Theory, University of Nottingham, UK
