Wiley, Apr 29, 2005 - Architecture - 128 pages
The 1970’s was marked by a seismic change that occurred in the representation of ideas in architecture as they appeared monthly on the pages of AD. The magazine bears out the energetic, experimental, environmentally-conscious and ultimately pluralist culture that prevailed throughout the 1960’s, carrying it through to the emergence of Post-Modernism in the late 1970’s. This issue of AD presents a 'Cosmorama for Now', looking at such subjects as housing, schools, health, urban design and planning.
