- Publisher's Summary
- The Sage Handbook of Architectural Theory documents and builds upon the most innovative developments in architectural theory over the last two decades. Bringing into dialogue a range of geographically, institutionally and historically competing positions, the book examines and explores parallel debates in related fields. The book is divided into eight sections: Power/Difference/Embodiment; Aesthetics/Pleasure/Excess; Nation/World/Spectacle; History/Memory/Tradition; Design/Production/Practice; Science/Technology/Virtuality; Nature/Ecology/Sustainability; and City/Metropolis/Territory. Creating openings for future lines of inquiry and establishing the basis for new directions for education, research and practice, the book is organized around specific case studies to provide a critical, interpretive and speculative enquiry into the relevant debates in architectural theory. A methodical, authoritative and comprehensive addition to the literature, the Handbook is suitable for academics, researchers and practioners in architecture, urban studies, cultural studies, sociology and geography.
