Author(s): BERNARD CACHE
A split between modern and historical realities - whether real, imagined, projected or fantasised - has long configured modern architectural culture. The very construction of this division has proved a durable, near structural, means by which to assert the idea of a properly 'modern' architecture defined in opposition to the past. The writings of Bernard Cache confound exactly this attempt to divide and then distance the contemporary world from its history.
Bernard Cache is the principal of the Paris-based practice Objectile, and a noted theorist of geometry and computational ontology.
