The Banham Lectures: Essays on Designing the Future
Jeremy Aynsley, Harriet Atkinson
Bloomsbury Academic, Dec 15, 2009 - Architecture - 306 pages
This volume presents a series of essays by leading critics on art, design, architecture and culture. All are inspired by the revolutionary work of Reyner Banham, who continues to be one of the greatest influences on Design and Architecture today. Integrating the study of pop art, industrial design and material culture for the first time, Banham's brilliant analyses of subjects--such as automobile styling, mobile homes, science fiction films, and our fondness for gadgets--anticipated many of our contemporary preoccupations. And just as Banham sought to overturn the views of previous generations, these critics aim to rethink the objects and buildings we use today. Provocative, engaged and inspired, The Banham Lectures is essential reading for anyone interested in the world we have made.
