AUTHOR

Clarke, David, Watkin, David, Dresch, Stephen

SUMMARY

The debate over architecture has been raging for years & shows no signs of abatement. In these entertaining yet serious essays, Clarke traces the origin of the malaise of modern architecture to schools of architecture themselves, both in the United States & France. He is also critical of contemporary artists, & laments the fact that modern art has now lost its connection to architecture. Clarke believes that contemporary architects have alienated the public with hideous buildings & this disaffection will eventually result in the destruction of their profession. He urges renewed recognition of the interdependence of architecture & society, & of the humanities & architecture. This engagingly written work is an important cross-cultural commentary on the state of Western architecture, art & education today. Clarke is professor of Advanced Technical Studies at Southern Illinois University & author of a number of books on architecture & environmental design. Includes an introduction by David Watkin, Head of the Department of History of Art at the University of Cambridge.Clarke, David is the author of 'Architecture of Alienation The Political Economy of Professional Education' with ISBN 9781560001577 and ISBN 1560001577.
