0 Reviews
The fifth volume in this acclaimed series on the history and philosophy of architecture crosses a wide geographical and temporal range, moving from Greco-Roman antiquity to tenth-century India to contemporary Thailand and New York. The inter-disciplinary essays share a common theme in their reflections on the meaning of 'place' and 'place-making' as a richer alternative to the conceptual abstraction of universal ‘space.’
