The Feeling of Things
This is a superb collection of essays focusing on contemporary architecture, from one of its leading British figures. Throughout his career, Adam Caruso - a leading figure in contemporary British architecture, and one half of celebrated London-based architectural firm Caruso St John - has continued to develop his writing and research, focusing his thoughts on the architectural practice and prominent figures of the Modern Movement. "The Feeling of Things" brings together a number of Caruso's writings (1997-2008) through which he reveals a new way to see and experience the radical approach to contemporary architecture of the Modern Movement.

About Adam Caruso
Adam Caruso was Professor of Architecture at the University of Bath, 2002-2004. He is currently Visiting Professor on the Cities Programme at the London School of Economics.
Adam Caruso is not only a member, together with Peter St John, of the London-based architecture office Caruso St John but also a prolific author who has focused his thoughts on the practice of architecture and who has taken a new look at some of the leading figures of the so-called other tradition in the Modern Movement. In Sigurd Lewerentz and a material basis for form (1997), The Tyranny of the New (1998), The Feeling of Things (1999), The Emotional City (2000), and Towards an Ontology of Construction (2002), we find a new perception of the radical approach adopted in modern and contemporary architecture.
