    Book details

Peter Eisenman, renowned for his own controversial and influential body of work, looks at ten leading architects of the twentieth century and their theoretical positions, technological innovations, and design contributions. Eisenman identifies a project within the oeuvre of each of these architects--Luigi Moretti, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Louis Kahn, Robert Venturi, James Stirling, Aldo Rossi, Rem Koolhaas, Daniel Libeskind, and Frank Gehry--that has profoundly affected architectural discourse and practice. With drawings, diagrams, and always-incisive text, he presents each architect's theoretical position, and then offers detailed critical analysis of the project.

"Eisenman cleanly dissects each project with a diagrammed analysis that leaves little room for arguement." "Architect Magazine""(Eisenman's) penetrating, sometimes brilliant analysis will prod you to see even the most celebrated of these buildings with fresh eyes. The power of his arguments will challenge some of your most dearly held architectural beliefs." "The New York Times"
