The architecture of good intentions

£32.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Colin Rowe writes on his belief that modern architecture - the "Architecture of Good Intentions" - no longer exists and that there is not, as yet, any comprehensive approach to fill the void. In a series of related essays, many delivered as lectures in various cities - Berlin, Barcelona, Rome, Zurich, Houston and Ithaca - Colin Rowe attempts to trace back the climates of opinion on modern architecture to their first visible adumbrations and, in doing so, displays his own view of the architecture of our time. Some fading to the spine, previous owner's name inscribed otherwise in great condition.
