Little Worlds documents three years of conversations and projects in Diploma Unit 9’s ongoing enquiry into context. At a time when architecture is trying to redefine itself, the issue of context – how to collect it, make it, shape it, talk about it and enter one’s architecture within it – is more pressing than ever. The book pulls together a collection of utterly unique and singular worlds that together argue for a positioning of architecture: not geographically, but rather set within its rich cultural context shaped by real histories and imagined futures. Ultimately, Little Worlds addresses a question all architects face at the beginning of their bright futures: how to shape an identity. Thanks to AA London (London).
