Summary

The writings of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari have had an immense impact on architectural discourse during the last two decades, particularly in the realm of digital design and fabrication. Well-known concepts such as rhizomatics, striated and smooth space, and folding have become part of architectural jargon. While Deleuze and Guattari do not devote much text directly to permanent forms of architecture, they are intrigued by structures like tents, shantytowns, and burrows. This 3 volume set of writings on architecture and urbanism presents a range of previously published pieces by Deleuze and Guattari and by many architectural and cultural theorists that explore the implications of their theories on the built environment. This critical collection will be useful to anyone looking into the impact of these great thinkers as it gathers together in one place the best sources for easy access.
