The Philosophy of Dumbness

Regular price £20.00 £0.00

This is the dumbest smart book on contemporary architecture. What really is this 'technology' that we speak of? How do we define 'intelligence'? These are just two of the questions that this book attempts to answer through the unconventional (and seemingly ironic) lens of 'dumbness'. Historical examples in science, art, and architecture ground 'dumbness' as a means to convey a trajectory to practice 'smarter'. Instead of a singular authoritative vision, over 50 contributors answer the question, 'What is the dumbest, but smartest thing you've done?' These unique responses provide a vivid lens into the culture of contemporary architecture and the rigour behind it.
