Real and Fake in Architecture

Close to the Original, Far from Authenticity?

The term fake suggests forgery but also imitation and reproduction - all processes familiar to contemporary cultural production and everyday life. Fakes in the art world have been the subject of research and publications, while fake buildings and spaces have received less attention in contemporary discourse. This book represents a series of snapshots of the space between fake and real, an exploration that quickly leads to the two attributes being entangled in contemporary attempts to generate genuine authenticity by replicating nostalgic details and superficial references.
