Semi-detached: Writing, Representation and Criticism in Architecture is a book about the role that words and images play in shaping our understanding of the built environment. A documentation of the conventions of architectural representation, it is also an exploration of the many ways in which those conventions can be productively challenged, subverted or ignored to broaden the conversation about architecture and what it means.

Contributors include John Macarthur, Naomi Stead, Marcus Trimble, Justine Clark, Gavin Hipkins, Katja Grillner, Philip Goad, Brett Boardman, Peter Bennetts, Jan van Schaik and Elizabeth Watson-Brown, amongst many others.
