Description

A lively and unconventional appreciation of pivotal buildings by Carlo Scarpa, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, and Louis Kahn that reveals enough idiosyncrasies and conceits to make any rationalist shudder--and invites a deeper appreciation of the prosaic construction detail.

Auteur

Michael Cadwell is a practicing architect and Associate Professor in the Austin E. Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University. A former Fellow of the American Academy in Rome and the MacDowell Colony, he is the author of Small Buildings.

Texte du rabat

Each of these architects, he finds, reconfigures the rudimentary facts of construction, creating a subtle but undeniable shift in a building's physicality. And for each of them, nature is strange, and its strangeness infects; nature unmoors exhausted cultural ideas, constricted analytical procedures, and outmoded production techniques. An awakening to nature's strangeness forces a new sense of the world, one that we can detect in these architects' configurations of the world's materials - their strange details.
