Summary:This second volume of the landmark Architectural Theory anthology
surveys the development of architectural theory from the
Franco-Prussian war of 1871 until the end of the twentieth century.
Together with volume I, it is the first anthology to follow the full
range of architectural literature from its beginnings in classical
times to its impact today. Drawing on diverse international texts,
this book explores various reform movements in Europe and North
America, including Arts & Crafts; spans the technological and
conceptual innovations of the late-nineteenth century in connection
with the rise and development of modern theory; and reviews early
critiques of modernism, the "post-modern" discussions of the 1970s,
and post-structural and regionalist thought in the 1980s. The editors
also consider the counter-movements of the 1990s - inspired by the
digital revolution, technological innovations, and growing concerns
for sustainable design. This anthology maps a wide array of debates
in architectural history, placing the writings of starchitects like
Koolhaas, Eisenman, and Lynn alongside the work of prominent
architectural critics. It also sheds new historical perspective on
topics such as ecology and sustainability, as well as CAD and blobs.
The result is an inspiring and comprehensive resource for those
studying or working in architectural theory and art history.
