Massive Attack is an assembled and edited critical mass of lectures extracted from the IOA Sliver Series entitled, selected Friends and Enemies. The lecturers include 24 leading architects, designers, critics, curators, and artists performing within the realm of the non-standard, at the extremities of their respective fields and viewpoints. The resulting spectrum of work ranges from innovative buildings, detailed aliens, bloated sculptures, scripted worlds, and atmospheric islands. The goal of the publication is tri-fold; to critically archive the series, frame insights to Vienna and the Institute of Architecture, and cross-pollinate ideas by looking at the series as a whole. The publication oscillates between deep critical input and superficial glances, appealing to a broad user base.
