From the Publisher
"This book brings together for the first time the principal writings on architecture by many of the key philosophers and culutral theorists of the twentieth century. These essays contain some of the most insightful observations on contemporary architecture, and offer refreshingly original perspectives on the subject. Together they constitute a body of material which prompts the rethinking of many accepted tenets of architectural theory from a broader cultural perspective."Lonaard
