The Building Hardback
Edited by Jose Araguez
For nearly fifty years "the building" has primarily been viewed as a means rather than an end within architectural history and theory.
This volume presents an alternative to that trend by reconceiving it as a central discursive category in its own right.
Contributors-including architects and academics from world-renowned institutions-offer insightful discussions of key architectural structures conceived in Europe, Asia, and the U.S.A. over the last three decades. In doing so they propel architectural thinking's importance as a domain of knowledge.
Further, in exploring those structures through a number of questions both intra- and meta-disciplinary, this book suggests ways in which buildings can trigger conceptual frameworks whose influence extends well beyond architecture.
A balanced text-to-image ratio caters to readers in both practice and academia.
