Summary: In these essays, philosopher Elizabeth Grosz explores the ways in which two disciplines that are fundamentally outside each another, architecture and philosophy, can meet in a third space to interact free of their internal constraints. "Outside" also refers to those whose voices are not usually heard in architectural discourse but who inhabit its space, the destitute, the homeless, the sick, and the dying, as well as women and minorities. Grosz asks how we can understand space differently in order to structure and inhabit our living arrangements accordingly. List(s) this item appears in: Sculpture 2.4 Objects and Invention
