Treatise presents a collection of individually authored books by fourteen emerging design offices that considers the architectural treatise as a site for theoretical inquiry, experimentation, and debate. Organized by Los Angeles-based designer Jimenez Lai and the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, this publication project and accompanying exhibition provide a dynamic space for these uncompromising designers to re-write the boundaries of conceptual architecture.
