NATØ: Narrative Architecture in Postmodern London by Claire Jamieson

By Claire Jamieson

Chronicling the final radical architectural team of the 20 th century – NATØ (Narrative structure this present day) – who emerged from the Architectural organization before everything of the Nineteen Eighties, this booklet explores the group’s paintings which echoed a much broader creative and literary tradition that drew at the particular political, social and actual situation of Eighties London. It lines NATØ’s identity with a selected circulation of post-punk, postmodern expression: a party of the abject, a cultured of entropy, and a home made provisionality. NATØ has often been documented in connection with Nigel Coates (the instigator of NATØ), which has resulted in a one-sided, one-dimensional list of NATØ’s position in architectural heritage. This booklet units out a extra distinct, contextual background of NATØ, informed via pictures, drawings, and ephemera, restoring a more true polyvocal narrative of the group’s ethos and development.
