Architecture: Art or Profession?

£50.00

Product description

Architects are perhaps the most important people involved in shaping the built environment, so the ideas they receive in the course of their training are a major influence upon the buildings and cities of the future. Crinson and Lubbock present a bold new perspective on the evolution of the British architect from Wren to post-modernism and beyond, and provide the first general history of architectural education, making an important contribution to current debates. The Prince of Wales' views on modern architecture and the need for a change in the way architects are trained, has attracted enormous support from the public, resulting in architects and their training being under the spotlight more than ever. The authors ask: what relation does an architect's education have to the built environment? and, what lessons are there from the past?
This book will be of interest to students, lecturers and all those interested in the debates around contemporary architecture.

Condition: Used, Fair. Front and back cover, light patches and edges very lightly frayed. Pages clean: not annotated. Slight patches on the outer edges.
