The Innovation Imperative Summary


The Innovation Imperative: Architectures of Vitality by Guest editor Pia Ednie-Brown

Suggesting a process that is fundamentally emergent, collective and environmentally situated, this book explores architectural innovation in terms of the production of vitality. Emphasizing attention to ways of doing as key to innovation, this book brings together historical perspectives with a range of leading provocative, emerging approaches to architectural practice that together offer fresh insight into the often vague and ubiquitous atmospheres of innovation-speak.
