Entitled New Order: Transdisciplinarity and Architectural Practice, Vol. 3 seeks to explore the architectural manifestation of a new, indeterminate paradigm; one characterised by the acute hybridisation of disciplines. Transdisciplinarity has been embraced and authenticated by the architectural establishment and public expectation. No longer bound by form-focused rules, architects are now able to find a new way of engaging with the natural and built environment through transdisciplinary practice.
New Order gathers a series of contributions that illustrate this expanded mode of architectural practice. Built projects, conversations and provocations once considered to be on the ‘fringe’ of architecture are presented in a critical investigation of this contemporary mode of practice.
