The article discusses the architectural experiments of Arakawa and Madeline Gins. In "Biosclave House," the gardens manifest a procedural architecture. In "The Mechanism of Meaning," cognitive puzzles and non-sensical conundrums interrogated the conditions of structures of perception to preempt automatism. According to the author, Arakawa and Gin's architecture empowers to stretch the limits of sensorial plasticity.
