This book is a chain of inspiration that involves 111 architects from around the world. How does inspiration move through the atmosphere? How do we inspire each other? And how does creative inspiration itself change through each person’s unique experience? To find out, Anna Bates initiated an experiment in 2017, tasking one architect to use a painting by Theo van Doesburg as a stimulus for creating their own work. This would then be passed on to other architects, who in turn would draw inspiration for their new work, and so on, growing into a web of conversation, interplay, and inspiration. Gary Bates of Space Group was invited to create the first work.
