Andreas Rumpfhuber: Architektur immaterieller Arbeit[Architecture of immaterial labour]

16 × 24 cm • 240 pp • softcover, thread sewn • publisher: Turia+Kant

Regardless of the discourses on the end of labour, and in contrast to diverse models of feasible utopias like the twenty-hour week or basic income, life in our societies is all about work.

The modern dictum of spatial and temporal simultaneity and concurrence of work processes, as well as the functionally distinct, well-defined attribution of the production-space disintegrates with the post-fordist organizations of labour.

These alterations are not limited to the social sphere; they have powerfully affected architecture and the built environment. The impact of the new modes and means of production on the urban fabric has led to the emergence of new and unprecedented spatial figurations that this book is discussing.
