Architecture and Philosophy: New Perspectives on the Work of Arakawa and Madeline Gins is a collection of essays on the work of artist-architects Arakawa and Madeline Gins and in particular their book Architectural Body (2000). The essays approach their cutting edge and ambitious project to design 'an architecture against death' from various angles and disciplines including aesthetics, architecture, linguistics, philosophy. The papers retrace the place of Architectural Body in the aesthetic landscape of art at the turn of the 21st century and assess the utopian stance of their work
