9780500284704: Words and Buildings: A Vocabulary of Modern Architecture

This original and thoughtful study provides the first thorough examination of the relationship between architecture and language as complex social practices.

The words we use when we talk and write about architecture describe more than just bricks and mortar―they direct the ways we think of and live with buildings. This groundbreaking book is the first thorough examination of the complex relationship between architecture and language as intricate social practices.

Six rigorously argued chapters and a vocabulary of key terms investigate the language of modernism; language and drawing; “masculine and feminine” architecture; language metaphors; science in architecture; and the social properties of architecture.

216 illustrations

About the Author :

Adrian Forty is Professor of Architectural History at the Bartlett School of Architecture and Planning, University College, London.

From Library Journal :

Academic discourse are the words that immediately come to mind when reading this work. Forty (history of architecture, Bartlett Sch. of Architecture, UK) is keenly interested in the relationship between architecture and language as complex social practices. Part 1 consists of six original essays inquiring into "the spoken and written language of modern architecture." These essays consider the language of modernism, language and drawing, masculine and feminine architecture, language metaphors, science in architecture, and the social properties of architecture. Part 2 is a "dictionary" of essays exploring the historical framework and theoretical meaning of 18 words that form the "core vocabulary of modernist architectural criticism." The scholarly text is well documented with footnotes and black-and-white illustrations. Recommended for large academic and specialized library collections.DJay Schafer, Bay Path Coll.
