Patrik Schumacher's new book "The Autopoiesis of Architecture. A Comprehensive Theory of Architecture in 2 Volumes"

Patrick Schumacher (Zaha Hadid)'s new book "The Autopoiesis of Architecture, A Comprehensive Theory of Architecture in 2 volumes" is available. The first volume "A New Framework for Architecture" is available in Amazon.co.uk but not yet in amazon.com (it will be available in February 2011), or in your local bookstore.

The premise here is that architecture has always already constituted itself self-referentially, via its own autonomous, disciplinary discourse…
