Robert Somol discusses the neo-avant garde in architecture, and on the importance of the diagram for introducing new models of reality. Somol documents what he refers to as a version of the history of architecture as a way to interrogate the pendulum swing between interest in reality and interest in representation. This version frames architecture as a continual solicitation and subversion of diagrams and promotes this method, employed by the second generation of the neo-avant garde, as the future of architecture.
