In this expansive volume of essays, architect Nazmi Anuar contemplates the field of contemporary architecture from the vantage point of Malaysia. Musing on everything from informal markets under highways to the Venice Biennale, he advocates for an open-ended architecture that serves as a background to frame the everyday, giving a platform to those who truly matter in architecture: users. Background, Frame and Platform is a tender call for rethinking the field of architecture as we know it.
