Architecture from Without

Author(s): Diana I. Agrest


Diana Agrest explores the symbolic dimension of architecture from the perspective of the modern city through a range of subjects: the relationship between architectural and urban ideologies; the symbolic performance of architecture in relation to the urban condition; the formal and ideological development of a building type; the relationship between architecture and other visual discourses; and the position of gender and body in Western architecture.
