Like in a galofari movie, the images—montages fold and unfold before our eyes, unbounded by either the associated concepts and meanings inherited in the images—origins they were built from, or the otherwise ubiquitous gravitational force.

An Atlas of Imagination is not just another picturesque assemblage of pictures and words; is a higher- order montage in its own right. This means that they may be instrumental in the conscious production of architecture and knowledge on architecture.

Moreover, the resulting montages recall some real architectural collages, surprisingly uncovering the origins of things and the hidden relationships between them.
