Abstract or Description

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, it 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
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.
