Publisher: New York, The Penguin Press: 2005

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 248553

Condition: Near Fine Condition


From one of the world's premier architecture critics, a groundbreaking dissection of how the colossal egos of the powerful and wealthy determine what actually gets built--of the real reasons why we build. Architecture critics most often write about buildings as a form of art, promulgating an "auteur theory" of architecture that focuses on the dazzling brilliance of the big names, such as Rem Koolhaas and Frank Gehry, and underplaying the role of the wealthy and powerful in forcing the architects' hands. Deyan Sudjic puts forth a boldly contrarian view. Architecture must be understood a... View more info

Condition: Near Fine Condition


This title provides detailed, up-to-date coverage of hazardous materials and situations. Lack of awareness about hazardous materials poses a major problem, causing many needless injuries and losses of property.

Condition: Very Good Condition


Robert Adam is one of the most honoured names in the history of western architecture. His buildings carry his 'signature' of rightness, nobility of proportion and taste as unmistakably as a chair by Sheraton. There have been earlier books about the architect's work but Adam the man has only been revealed in a thorough way since his extensive correspondence and documents were made available after 1950.
