"Anyplace" brings together a number of the world's leading architects, philosophers, artists, historians, critics and others in a volume that represents current thinking on the "place" of architecture in relationship to thought, politics, art, science and the developing technological realm of cyberspace. Essays by Sylviane Agacinski, Fredric Jameson, Peter Galison and Caroline Jones, Elizabeth Grosz, Bernard Tschumi, Arata Isozaki, and Peter Eisenman, among others, and portfolios of current work by artists and architects, including Elizabeth Diller, Rem Koolhaas, and Daniel Libeskind, are enhanced by discussions from the Anyplace conference at the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal (1994), in which many of the authors participated. "Anyplace" is the fourth in a series of eleven planned volumes documenting the annual international, cross-disciplinary conferences being sponsored by Anyone Corporation to investigate the condition of architecture at the end of the millenium.

Cynthia Davidson is the editor of ANY Magazine, the director of Anyone Corporation, and a member of the editorial board of the Writing Architecture series (MIT Press).From Library Journal:
Anyplace is the fourth in a series of 11 volumes compiled annually by Anyone Corporation of New York concerning the condition and cultural problems of architecture at the end of the century. Nearly all of its content derives from a cross-cultural and multidisciplinary international conference held in Montreal in 1994. Thirty architects, philosophers, writers, and academicians weigh in in this provocative and vividly presented volume of 21 essays and eight visual portfolios. Its originality of design and presentation as much as its content will delight researchers. Often the bane of conference books, the discussion segments are thoughtfully and smoothly edited. Unfortunately, participant biographies are scattered throughout the text and are therefore difficult to ferret out. A tour de force about the current conundrums of architecture, this is highly recommended for academic and specialized libraries.?Russell T. Clement, Univ. of Tennessee Lib., Knoxville
