Annotated Catalogue of the Architexto Project

The Catalogue Raisonné du projet Architexto (Annotated Catalogue of the Architexto Project) will be presented on the occasion of the opening night of the exhibition on 19 January. This work retraces the history of this cross-disciplinary cultural project, acting as an accompaniment to its launch as a stand-alone and travelling exhibition.

Richard Scoffier wrote the back cover:
"This publication is a reminder that the works that are part of the Architexto collection only look like ordinary books in appearance, enabling readers to  broaden the scope of their knowledge and understanding.  Above all, they are above all devices that prompt us to reflect on what enables all understanding, every fiction. The process is simple. A poetic, critical, dramatic, scientific, philosophical text or a text lifted from a novel is compared with the plans,  sections, elevations, the working drawings that set out the work of an architect.  A juxtaposition that updates the singular conspiracy that exists between words and plans.
As if, by tracing his letters on his page, each author emulates the act of survival of a constructor who scarifies the soil to mark out a special area that offers a new perspective of the world.  All thought is a home, every home is a thought."
