Description

In the discussion of architecture, the prevailing sentiment of the past three decades has been that cultural production can no longer be understood to arise spontaneously, as a matter of social course, but is constructed through ever more self-conscious theoretical proceedures.

The development of interpretative modes of various stripes -poststructuralist, Marxian, phenomenological, psychoanalytic, as well as others dissenting or eccentric- has given scholars a range of tools for rethinking architecture in a relation to other fields and for reasserting architecture's general importance in intellectual discourse.

This paperback version of the classic hardback, presents itself as forty-seven primary texts of contemporary architecture theory, introducing each by detailing the concepts and catagories necessary for its understanding and evaluation. It also presents twelve documents of projects or events that had major theoretical reprecussions for the period.

This is a major, contemporary, illustrated reference book essential to all those interested in the theoretical debates of architecture over the last three decades.
