  • SUBNATURE
    GISSEN, DAVID

    LEATHERBARROW, DAVID
    Architecture Oriented Otherwise -- So much writing about architecture tends to evaluate it on the basis of its intentions: how closely it corresponds to the artistic will of the designer, the technical skills of the builder, or whether it reflects the spirit of the place and time in which it was built, making it not much more than the willful (or even subconscious) assemblage o...
