From the PublisherAs Fred Rush argues, various attempts over the last century to lend conceptual gravity to architecture have eclipsed our experience of it. On Architecture, his sustained and exacting reflection on the inevitably embodied nature of experience, returns to architecture the multi-sensory immersion foundational to its very perception. In adding material encounters to conceptual categories, Rush proposes not only that architecture is a distinct form of knowing, but that it has also the potential to enrich such elemental human faculties as memory and a sense of place.
-Sandy Isenstadt, Yale University
Fred Rush has written a lucid, engaging essay on architectural theory and practice. . . . [He] writes with a formidable knowledge of classical aesthetics, does not shy away from taking a critical stand on a number of modern and contemporary buildings, and argues persuasively for the value of a phenomenologically inspired architecture.
