This progressive paintings by means of artist-architects Arakawa and Madeline Gins demonstrates the inter-connectedness of leading edge architectural layout, the poetic approach, and philosophical inquiry. jointly, they've got created an experimental and broadly well-known physique of work--museum installations, panorama and park commissions, domestic and place of work designs, avant-garde movies, poetry collections--that demanding situations conventional notions concerning the equipped setting. This booklet promotes a planned use of structure and layout in facing the blight of the human situation; it recommends that individuals search architectural and aesthetic ideas to the predicament of mortality.

In 1997 the Guggenheim Museum provided an Arakawa/Gins retrospective and released a finished quantity in their paintings titled Reversible future: we now have determined to not Die. Architectural Body maintains the philosophical definition of that undertaking and calls for a basic rethinking of the phrases "human" and "being." whilst organisms imagine complete accountability for inventing themselves, the place they stay and the way they dwell will merge. The artists think thorough re-visioning of structure will redefine lifestyles and its barriers and render demise passe. The authors clarify that "Another solution to learn reversible future . . . Is as an open problem to our species to reinvent itself and to desist from foreclosing on any possibility."
