Architectural expressions: a photographic reassessment of fun in architecture
Architectural Expressions turns on its head the notion that architecture must be deadly serious in order to be valid. It is a testament to the wit and inventiveness of a selection of architects and building designers over the last century who have injected a sense of fun into the built environment
Over the last 30 years, brothers Peter and Tony Mackertich have travelled the western world seeking out buildings which are inspiring, innovative, and show a touch of humour. Their stunning colour photographs bear witness to the fact that it is possible to make legitimate architecture whilst still retaining a smile. Boldly juxtaposing 'high' architecture with less recognised structures, the book traces the development of the spirit of fun in 20th-century building design.
