Summary This book presents the first comprehensive monograph on the Swiss architects E2A. Brothers Piet and Wim Eckert consider their work an interpretation of contemporary living conditions. In today's context, expectations, experiences, and ambitions characterize places and dynamically collide with reality. The disparate becomes the program of the discipline of architecture which, in their work, becomes a persistent journey of discovery that explores and exposes associations and relationships. Here, one experiences a fine line between dream and reality which could be described as a systematic incoherence. Thus, rather than designing the perfect machine for an idealized image of society, E2A integrates varied and diametrical terms and conditions that were once mutually exclusive. Projects, ideas, essays, and notes supplement built projects and record positions, assessments, and ongoing questions. It is in this way that we become accomplices in the intense debate about the city and architecture.
