"Fragments: Architecture and the Unfinished" is published to mark the retirement of Robin Middleton, one of the most distinguished architectural historians of recent times. In twenty-one essays ranging from the practices of the mid-eighteenth century to the contemporary work of Frank Gehry, this scholarly volume explores the architectural effects and the philosophical implications of fragmentation in architecture.
