    While the work of Henri Lefebvre has become better known in the English-speaking world since the 1991 translation of his 1974 masterpiece, The Production of Space , his influence on the actual production of architecture and the city has been less pronounced.

  • Archispeakby Tom Porter

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 46.95

  • From Autos to Architectureby David Gartman

    Princeton Architectural Press 2012; US$ 47.99

    One of the most interesting questions in architectural history is why modern architecture emerged from the war-ravaged regions of central Europe and not the United States, whose techniques of mass production and mechanical products so inspired the first generation of modern architects like Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and Walter Gropius. In  From... more...

  • Architecture Oriented Otherwiseby David Leatherbarrow

    Princeton Architectural Press 2012; US$ 31.99

    So much writing about architecture tends to evaluate it on the basis of its intentions: how closely it corresponds to the artistic will of the designer, the technical skills of the builder, or whether it reflects the spirit of the place and time in which it was built, making it not much more than the willful (or even subconscious) assemblage of objects... more...
