Reinier de Graaf in conversation with Patrik Schumacher about his new book, Four Walls and a Roof, The Complex Nature of a Simple Profession.
Written as a series of essays, Four Walls and a Roof gives an honest portrayal of the divide between ideology and practice in the architectural profession. It ruminates on perpetual conflicts of interest, myths of success, the effects of economy and what it should mean to be a contemporary architect.
Patrik interrogates Reinier on the context of the book, its inspiration and deeper meanings, and its relevance to the architectural profession today.
Reinier de Graaf is a partner at the Office for Metropolitan Architecture.
