Under the Influence is edited by Ana Miljački with a contribution by Alexander D’Hooghe titled Affinity or
(Idealogical and) Affinity: Architectural Histories as Conversation Partners
“The book is based on the eponymous symposium, which brought together scholars and practitioners of architecture in order to focus on one of the most anxious disciplinary topics: influence. The symposium invited each of the participants to illuminate a single term—a disciplinary synonym for appropriation—and through that term, the specific strategies, historical, and disciplinary circumstances in which it is enmeshed. It was organized and hosted by Ana Miljački, and presented by the MIT Department of Architecture. With some small additions this is a reprint of that book. Contributors: Ana Miljački, Mario Carpo, Alexander D’Hooghe, Cristina Goberna, Urtzi Grau, Eric Höweler, Timothy Hyde, Florian Idenburg, Sam Jacob, Michael Kubo, Amanda Reeser Lawrence, Michael Meredith, Hilary Sample, Nader Tehrani, Enrique Walker, Ines Weizman, Meejin Yoon.
