Description

Critical Architecture and Contemporary Culture will be the third volume in the series we have undertaken in collaboration with the University of California Humanities Research Institute. Like the symposium on which it is based, the book brings together prominent literary theorists and architects to offer a variety of perspectives on the relation between post-modernism and architecture. The contributors include such luminaries from the forefront of literary studies as J Hillis Miller, Jacques Derrida and Jean-Francois Lyotard; the architects Peter Eisenman and Robert Stern are also called upon to offer their interpretations of "deconstructive architecture." The high calibre of the discourse and the variety of approaches included is liable to draw a scholarly audience from a wide range of disciplines.show more
