What People are Saying About This

Marc Angélil

Neil Leach gives new meaning to the term 'camouflage' in this brilliant treatise on aesthetic practice. This eloquent reframing of architecture's means of identity production is an optimistic appeal for design as a potent agent in our interactions with the world, both physically and mentally. A persuasive rewriting of architectural discourse, Camouflage is performative theory at its best.

Xavier Costa

In his extraordinary new book, Neil Leach addresses the cultural significance of representation and its role in defining our belonging to the world. The concept of camouflage, a form of inscription in space, eloquently points to the contemporary need for engagement, connectivity, and identification with our environment. Camouflage proves that appearances can indeed be essential.
