"Anything: Architecture at the End of the Millennium"
2000-06-01 until 2000-06-03
New York, NY,
USA United States of America
The culmination of ten years' investigation, this conference presents some of
the world's leading architects and luminaries from other disciplines-art,
philosophy, economics, and sociology-to discuss the state of architecture in
the global age.
In the decade leading to the new millennium, Anyone is sponsoring ten multidisciplinary
and cross-cultural conferences on the condition of architecture at the end of the
millennium. The results of each conference – the participants' papers and edited
transcripts of the discussions – are published in books of the same name. The
conferences, which began in 1991, are held at different sites around the globe and
explore different themes based on architectural definitions of the ten compound any
words in the English dictionary: Anyone, Anywhere, Anyway, Anyplace, Anywise,
Anybody, Anyhow, Anytime, Anymore, and Anything.
The books documenting the conferences contain essays by each participant and
transcripts of the discussions. They range from 232 to 288 pages and are illustrated.
