Style and Configuration

£5.99

Product description

Style and Configuration concentrates upon the relationship between detail, economy and form in architecture, the stamp of Professor Gowan's innovative buildings which place him in a class of his own. His prolific architectural ventures and achievements are recorded in this volume in the form of a series of articles written by the architect himself.;These span the last 25 years and are accompanied by a wealth of illustrations and line drawings, resulting in a book which is both highly informative and rich in visual content. He writes with humour and verve, discussing his own works and those of great architects such as Vanbrugh, Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Louis Kahn, and Palladio in particular, who has had a lasting influence upon him.;The book is divided into eight chapters which explore the different aspects of London. Europe, planning, technology, the house, projects, theory and America. Each section is accessible in its own right whilst at the same time being an imperative part of the understanding of the greater whole.

Good condition though does have small nick in dustjacket on front right hand side.
