An Architect's Guide to Fame, Volume 1
Paul Davies, Torsten Schmiedeknecht, Julie Cook
Routledge, 2005 - Architecture - 380 pages
This lively text provides a candid inquiry into the contemporary means by which architects get work and (for better or worse) become famous.
In response to the reciprocal relationship between publicity and everyday architectural practice, this book examines the mechanisms by which architects seek publicity and manage to establish themselves and their work ahead of their colleagues. Through the essays of specialist contributors, this book enables the reader to understand the complex relationship between what they see as the built environment and the unwritten stories behind how it came about.
* Internationally known architects bring an insider's view of the profession to life
* Shows architects how to establish a strong reputation in one of the most competitive professional fields
* Links themes of contemporary culture to key architectural issues
