At the turn of the millennium--the end of a calibrated period of time--it seems necessary to ask certain questions, foremost among them: Anymore? Anymore history and theory? Anymore architecture? Of particular concern are the last two hundred years, a self-conscious period known as modernism. Can we assume that a simple calendar change signals an end or a time of end? Is there anymore? The contributions in "Anymore" are by architects, critics, historians, philosophers, sociologists, urbanists, and others. They include Akira Asada, Hubert Damisch, Peter Eisenman, Arata Isozki, Rem Koolhas, Rosalind Krauss, Ignasi de Sola-Morales, Mark Taylor, Bernard Tschumi, and Anthony Vidler, as well as young architects from France whose work many American readers will encounter here for the first time. "Anymore" is the ninth book in the ongoing series that began in 1991 with "Anyone" and was followed by "Anywhere," "Anyway," "Anyplace," "Anywise," "Anybody," "Anyhow," and "Anytime." Each volume is based on a conference at which architects and leaders in other fields come together to present papers and discuss a particular idea in architecture from a cross-cultural and multidisciplinary perspective. The conference upon which "Anymore" is based took place in Paris in June 1999. "Anymore" will be followed by "Anything."
