Three Doors to Other Worlds

Andrew Crompton

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Architecture that is hard to describe by being immaterial, irrelevant, and unintended may engage us in a narrative rather than a visual sense. Three examples of anonymous architecture are presented where stories regarding interfaces between existence and nonexistence emerge. They are all places where people can vanish and taken together tell stories of death, hell, and heaven. In these unexpected places, the deeper issues of life may be obliquely and ironically experienced. © 2008 ACSA.
