Andreas Papadakis presents Theory + Experimentation

£32.99

Product description

This is not only a source book of an international array of architects and ideas, an extravaganza of architectural theory and its realisation, but also contains extensive biographies of 35 architects. The fracturing of the barriers between theory and relaity is revealed as architecture moves from the studio and the realm of theory into street - the realm of practice, displaying an architecture of experimentation, invention and freedom. This book forms a rigorous up-to-the-minute view of architectural thinking today, and includes, inter alias, the work of Bernard Tschumi, Peter Eisenman, Morphosis, Coop Himmelblau, Daniel Libeskind and Itsuko Hasegawa.
The pages have darkened very slightly around the edges but are otherwise pristine throughout. Tightly bound in black cloth with gilt titles. The jacket is unclipped, has darkened slightly and shows slight shelf wear. A heavy book.

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
