The everyday and architecture
A book celebrating the aspects of the buildings in which we live and work.
Architectural criticism and inquiry traditionally focuses on the monumental, but this refreshing book focuses on the often overlooked subject of ordinary structures and how we live in and use them. Features essays and projects by Rem Koulhaas, Gunter Beknish, Michael Marriott, and Ben Kelly, among others.
