Summary

Summary

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.

Sarah Wigglesworth (London, England) is principal of Sarah Wigglesworth Architects and senior lecturer at Kingston University. Jeremy Till (London, England) is senior lecturer and sub-dean of the Faculty of the Built Environment at the University College London. Both authors were Fulbright Fellows in 1991.
