Schizophrenic Architecture

BY MARCO BAKKER AND ALEXANDRE BLANC
@ VOL 9 ON MAY 11, 2012

In their presentation, architects Marco Bakker and Alexandre Blanc start by looking at various examples throughout history of what they see as examples of schizophrenia in architecture. They finish by describing one of their own projects -- the Swiss embassy in Algiers -- and how they also see it as reflecting a certain level of schizophrenic reality (the co-existence of two cultures).
