By now, after an almost century of technological development and brave modernizations, it would be only honest to conclude that architectural discourse has given up its edge to architectural technology. Architectural practice that was firmly grounded on its cultural and social, ideological and symbolic, affective and emotional connotations has given way for pure logic of economic and technological denotations. The contemporary language of «cutting edge» architecture, despite all its technical superiority, is nothing but a porous frontier that is melting before contingent identities of the present citizen. With this open call for critical texts we are hoping to examine this tendency. We seek for practices that bravely dissect and cultivate that fragile frontier. Especially those that see architecture not as fixed technological and economic necessity but an open ended cultural practice.
