In his book Subnature, the architectural historian David Gissenprovides an etymological history of debris as it pertains to our perception of ruins. There is little point in me repeating what David Gissen has put so beautifully and engaging in print.

Subnature: Architecture’s Other Environments offers an which buildings release the dankness of the earth into the spaces of alternative vision to those contemporary municipalities, developers, a home. As this book will demonstrate, the story of subnature is deep and architects who seek to remake cities and buildings through the and complex. Nothing is inherently subnatural in architecture; rather, parameters of a more natural framework based on sustainable prin- these forms arise from a particular set of social and architectural ciples.

In Subnature, David Gissen, author of our critically acclaimed Big and Green, examines experimental work by today's leading designers, scholars, philosophers, and biologists that rejects the idea that humans can somehow recreate a purely natural world, free of the untidy elements that.

Professor Gissen's Subnature may at first seem to be an in depth study of matter such as pollution, mud or debris. Not so in my opinion. This book is also about uncovering the intagible and invisible nature of history. An experimental history whereby events in the past may help us reshape the future.
An extraordinary and poetic journey in which the immanence of matter becomes a phenomenological vehicule for dreaming new creations.
