Since the early 1960s, the rigor and conceptual clarity of Alan Colquhoun's criticism and theory have consistently stimulated debate and have served as an impetus for the pursuit of new directions in both theory and practice. This collection of essays displays Colquhoun's concern with developing, a coherent discourse for the rampant pluralism that dominates architecture. Alan Colquhoun is a practicing architect and his previous collection of essays received the 1985 Architectural Critics Award.

Review quote

"The serious and deeply engaged thinking of one of our best contemporary critics of architecture.... Colquhoun's rigorous but open-minded essays represent a desire to "conserve through criticism" what is still vital in the traditions of Modernism and Classicism. They reflect their author's articulate passion for an ongoing culture and practice of architecture."--Joan Ockman, Progressive Architecture
