on polylogue* polylogue is the second book the continuing portfolios in bachelors degree. first book being the questionnaire, it was pointing the importance of asking as many as thought provoaking questions. the architecture, indeed, is shaped by the questions that are asked. whereas the polylogue points out mandatory nature of architecture to communicate to one another. being different than the monologue, which makes connections one way and the dialogue that enables mutual relations but only in between a limited person; polylogue aims to communicate the imaginary work of architecture both in words and images in between as many as actors reciprocativly by means of technology.

*polylogue /ˈpɒlɪlɒɡ / n. a discussion involving more than two people. origin | late 19th century. From poly- + -logue, after dialogue. [s. oxford dictionaries]
