Creating and thinking about architecture has always been defined by the mechanism of action and reaction. One way of making architecture is criticised or rejected and immediately used as a starting point for another, opposing and better method, practice of theory. Architects and critics react to each other's views using drawings, texts, models and buildings. A good architecture culture thrives on such a basis: the exciting battle between views, opinions and beliefs.

Oase 97 describes and illustrates passionate debates and polemical interactions from the seventeenth o the late twentieth century. The result is a collection of opposing yet inseparably connected definitions of good and necessary architecture.
