"Most people think of architecture as a very concrete and material medium; but in fact architecture is also one of the most complex perceptual medium-it is constantly changing, constantly moving, and is constantly asking to be experienced in time. In the three essays contained in this book-"Of Mirrors and Ashes," "Architecture's Appearance and the Practices of Imagination" and "Materiality of Figure, Figures of Materiality"-Hays offers a more robust way of perceiving architecture-a way of conceiving it in its richness and complexity and also its social importance. As the author points out: "Architecture is a fundamental human postulate. It is something that we need as a society, as a collective group, to understand our place in the world. And what this book does is offer examples and models of how architecture helps us to engage the world." " "La mayoria de la gente piensa en la arquitectura como un medio muy concreto y material; pero en realidad la arquitectura es tambien uno de los medios perceptivos mas complejos: esta constantemente cambiando, constantemente moviendose, y esta pidiendo constantemente ser experimentada en el tiempo. En los tres ensayos contenidos en este libro - "De espejos y cenizas," "La aparicion de la arquitectura y las practicas de la imaginacion" y "Materialidad de la figura, figuras de la materialidad" - Hays ofrece una forma mas robusta de percibir la arquitectura. Una forma de concebirla en su riqueza y complejidad y tambien su importancia social. Tal como indica su autor: "La arquitectura es un postulado humano fundamental. Es algo que necesitamos como sociedad, como grupo colectivo, para entender nuestro lugar en el mundo. Y lo que este libro hace es ofrecer ejemplos y modelos de como la arquitectura nos ayuda a incorporar al mundo.""
