What People are Saying About This

Journal of Architectural Education

In these essays Rowe makes the history of ideas into a dramatic theatre and he prods the polemics, theories and orthodox histories of modern architecture onto its stage. Here they're launched on clashing courses and their irresoluble conflicts played out among the set pieces of the modern movement.
