Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Continues the examination begun in the 1996 edition of the emergence of green design in modern architecture in response to evolving views of nature. Contains new material, some drawn from the author's doctoral thesis, on England and modernism; the Swedish style; the Arts and Crafts house; and applications of the idea of ecology. Numerous b&w illustrations sample the "cult of the cottage," Victorian homes, the International Style, and diverse embodiments of organic design and housing for alternative living. Includes a glossary of terms. Farmer was head of the School of Art and Design History at Kingston U. until his death in 1994. Editor Richardson was a friend and colleague. Annotation c.
