Architecture, criticism, ideology

Front Cover
Princeton Architectural Press, 1985 - Architecture - 191 pages
One of the most important collections of essays in architectural criticism published in the last decade, Architecture Criticism Ideology sparked a debate on the context of the critique of ideology. This book contains essays by Manfredo Tafuri, Frederic Jameson, Tomas Llorens, Demetri Porphyrios, and Alan Colquhoun. The essays examine the role of ideology in architectural criticism and politics, a subject that, until now, has received little attention in contemporary American architectural discourse.
