About the book

The b-sides are architecture when it first wakes up in the morning, before washing its face, combing its hair and putting on its makeup. They’re the antithesis of the Instagram culture that has seen spectacular buildings put up almost for the sole reason of satisfying this insatiable desire for an easily-digestible image – one that will, above all else, be attractive and liked.

The photographs in this book show us that other side: architecture’s unconscious, if you like, but an unconscious that is hidden in plain sight.
