Overview

Colin Rowe has achieved legendary status as one of a handful of outstanding studio teachers of architecture and urban design to emerge within the last two generations. His writings reveal the powerful insight and dispassionate,
authoritative intelligence that mark him as one of the preeminent architectural thinkers of this perplexing half century.

Divided into three volumes, in more or less chronological order, As I Was Saying
includes articles, essays, eulogies, lectures, reviews, and memoranda.
Some appeared only in obscure journals, and many are published here for the first time.
