From the Publisher"Mitchell is onto something that most architectural writers ignore: Design permeates our daily life, and it is changing, just as quickly." Architectural Record
"Thank goodness, then, after all this architectural frottage in the agora, to find little that is frivolous and much that is inspiring in William J.
Mitchell's new book, Placing Words: Symbols, Space, and the City....The book is less about architecture as a practice than about the world in which they work.... It is the job of the architect, Mitchell's essayistic flights make clear, not merely to build but also to help us assemble an understanding of how 'we make our buildings,and... our buildings make us.'"
