Derrida for Architects Paperback
Part of the Thinkers for Architects series
Looking afresh at the implications of Jacques Derrida's thinking for architecture, this book simplifies his ideas in a clear, concise way.
Derrida`s treatment of key philosophical texts has been labelled as "deconstruction," a term that resonates with architecture.
Although his main focus is language, his thinking has been applied by architectural theorists widely. As well as a review of Derrida's interaction with architecture, this book is also a careful consideration of the implications of his thinking, particularly on the way architecture is practiced.
