Following the "Value of Architecture Centres" conference hosted in the UK in June 2002 this is the first comprehensive guide to architecture centres in Europe and North America.

Public interest in architecture has increased significantly over the last few years. This, combined with social developments of increased democracy, citizenship and public participation has brought about the development of architecture centres around the world. Many have different directions but they all overlap in their aim to provide education and information about architecture at all levels.

  • The first and only directory to present all architecture centres in Europe and North America
  • Includes contributions and important essays from key thinkers/activists in the field, including: Charles Landry (Comedia), Joe Kerr (Royal College of Art), Ben Rogers (Institute of Public Policy Research), Janice Kirkpatrick (Graven Images) and Tom Dyckhoff (Architecture Critic, The Times)
  • Packed with case studies and images of the activities undertaken by the centres
  • Includes a definitive international directory of centres
