This is the first book to address architecture and her wider relations in art. Though many scholarly works have examined these ideas, not one study has brought together architecture and its wider representation in literary fiction, cinema, painting, the graphic novel and music, until now. Whilst specifically looking at the emergence of the modern city in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the book also draws on contemporary concerns and issues which have persisted to the present day in the treatment of architecture in the arts. This focus allows the text to apply a thorough treatment of this broad subject, without losing depth and to conclude in the discussion of a universal gesamtkunstwerk. This book offers students a unique opportunity to understand architecture's place in arts and indeed how architecture could strive to offer the ultimate synthesis of the arts. It makes essential reading for any individual studying the theory, philosophy or history of architecture.
