Form, substance is the prologue written by Luca Silenzi for Pure Hardcore Icons (Artifice Books, London 2013), a manifesto on pure form in architecture conceived by the Beijing-Paris-based WAI Architecture Think Tank (Cruz Garcia+Nathalie Frankowski).

The text is a perspective on the dialectic between form and architecture, deepening the fascination of some primitive, timeless formal concepts inside the mind of designers, jury members and clients.
