Architectural Ekphraseis book
The astonishing capacity for interaction between architectural environments and human beings may challenge some communication and media models. As a medium, architecture demands to be considered in terms of its procedural quality. Such process(es) may be transmediated in several ways through different literary devices, one of which is ekphrasis. By (re)introducing architecture as a qualified medium due to its historical discourse in the system of arts and its potential to perform within human communication and culture, the aim of this chapter is to discuss how ekphrasis is able to foreground the subject of architecture by unveiling architectural processes in contemporary fiction.
