"Darkitecture" is an anthology of texts and projects exploring how we learn about architecture and build buildings for real communities in the twenty-first century. It draws on the ideas and methods of the late architect Gerrard O'Carroll, a vibrant and unorthodox thinker, reprinting his own writings and statements alongside texts and projects by his contemporaries and alumni. Together these writings represent a selection of "what if?" scenarios with which to proceed on the journey toward becoming an architect; toward the conception of a design vocabulary that enhances everyday life; and the creation of buildings and urbanisms that embrace the irrational and celebrate the social. "Darkitecture" is a revolutionary handbook that will challenge students, designers, architects and citizens to review the way they look at and think about architecture.
