    The Architecture of Displacement and Placelessness(Volume in Inglese). In Hypercontextuality, American architect Michael Herrman identifies a psychological-social phenomenon through which architecture interconnects distant, past, and imagined contexts, profoundly altering the way spaces have been perceived, inhabited, and built since the mid-twentieth century. Through a fascinating journey across Europe's cities, through its airports, and inside its neighborhoods, this book weaves together an exploration of works of architecture that have eradicated the postmodern concept of contextuality to reveal an increasingly hypercontextual world.
