‘Oswald Mathias Ungers – Morphologie. City Metaphors‘ printed 2023 and available again.
The eigtheenth century philosopher Immanuel Kant saw analogies as something essential in order for knowledge to be broadened.
In this reissue, with markedly improved image processing, of the ‘classic’ that was first published in 1982, the architect Oswald Mathias Ungers places 128 city plans next to and in direct contrast with analogue photos of flora, fauna and the everyday world, which he found in his library.
Features the essay ‘Designing and Thinking in Images, Metaphors and Analogies’ by O.M. Ungers.
