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.

Review Text

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.
