Overview

"Poetry and architecture reciprocate in an assymetrical dance" writes Jill Stoner, Associate Professor of Architecture at UC Berkeley. In this unprecedented volume she brings the two disciplines together, choosing 48 poems by some of the 20th century's finest poets - including Sylvia Plath, Wallace Stevens, Adrienne Rich and W.H. Auden - and providing an introductory essay to each one. Jill Stoner believes that, "The strange spaces of poetry can make more familiar the spaces of daily life, and architects, by visiting the spaces of poems, can become more tuned to the walls we still build, and within which we pass these present days." Includes 6 b&w and 6 color reproductions.
