Bernard Rudofsky: a humane designer
Known for his bestselling books, Architecture without Architects, Streets for People, and the Prodigious Builders, Bernard Rudofsky (1905-1988) was also a prolific architect, theoretician, and designer. His influence in the field of design-and outside it, with his insistence that we look at the diverse forms of human habitation around the world-were enormous. Designer of several landmark exhibitions, artistic and editorial director of various architecture and design journals such as Domus, and prolific author, Rudofsky's life and work are chronicled in this first monograph, which includes previously unpublished material and gives a comprehensive and serious understanding of this central figure in twentieth-century design.
