Overview

Labour, Work and Architecture is an anthology of writings by the architectural critic, Kenneth Frampton. It brings together a number of influential texts, written over the last thirty-five years, which focus on twentieth-century architecture, dealing with themes and movements, built works and the architects responsible for these buildings.

The essays are presented in chronological order under the successive rubrics of 'theory', 'history' and 'criticism', and together they serve to position modern architecture in its broader historical and cultural context. The anthology includes early critical reviews from the 1960s and 1970s analysing contemporary buildings, as well as theoretical and historical essays examining the ideological and material circumstances under which buildings are produced. As a collection, Labour, Work and Architecture is an important document in the historiography of twentieth-century architecture by a respected scholar dedicated to the understanding and improvement of our built environment.
