MEDIA REVIEWS
Andrzejewski's application of Foucault's panoptic theory to a broad range
of building typologies serves to test his more metaphorical notion of the
gaze in a diversity of situations beyond that of the prison. . . . The
author's comparative method is original and yields new insight into the
widespread role of surveillance in American life.
-Ken Breisch, University of Southern California"
Building Power is a major contribution to the history of architecture, vernacular theory, and the study of surveillance. Andrzejewski integrates social and architectural history, spurring the reader to new conclusions about important issues of power and space. It will pave the way for new scholarship in art history, American studies, and American history. Carla Yanni, Rutgers University
