Architecture, Crisis and Resuscitation: The Reproduction of Post-Fordism in Late-Twentieth-Century Architecture (Hardback)Tahl Kaminer (author)
- We can order this
Studying the relation of architecture to society, this book explains the manner in which the discipline of architecture adjusted itself in order to satisfy new pressures by society. Consequently, it offers an understanding of contemporary conditions and phenomena, ranging from the ubiquity of landmark buildings to the celebrity status of architects. It concerns the period spanning from 1966 to the first years of the current century - a period which saw radical change in economy, politics, and culture and a period in which architecture radically transformed, substituting the alleged dreariness of modernism with spectacle.

"Kaminer has deftly identified the dilemma of the contemporary student of architecture and Architecture, Crisis and Resuscitation throws down the pedagogical gauntlet, inviting architectural educators, and by extension the discipline of architecture, to address this quandary."
Amy Kulper, Architectural Theory Review, December 2011
"Tahl Kaminer's work stands out among recent publications... a fine, heterogeneous, and complex weave of relationships whose internal dynamics nonetheless depend on external economic processes and transformations."
Ana Jeinic, GAM Architecture Magazine 08
