Overview

Terminal Architecture by Martin Pawley


In Terminal Architecture, Martin Pawley argues that nearly all modern architecture is misconceived. To embrace a genuinely innovative architectural future would entail a radical shift in values and Pawley considers new vocabularies to achieve this aim. The vision described in Terminal Architecture is an apocalyptic one, spelling the end of architecture and the city as we know them, and cannot fail to stimulate debate.

"Brilliant and beautifully written"—Jonathan Glancey, The Architects' Journal
