Typology 2

Delhi, Paris, São Paulo, Athens. Review No. III

With Essays by Anupam Bansal, Emanuel Christ, Christoph Gantenbein, Victoria Easton, and Philippe Simon

In the third volume of the new series exploring the foundational theories and works of architects Emanuel Christ and Christoph Gantenbein, more than 150 buildings are documented through floor plans, axonometric projections, recent color photographs, and halftones. The buildings, many of them relatively unknown, were chosen in order to provide a basis for looking at metropolitan design in the twentieth century, and they show the patterns and differences found in architecture from around the world. Included is an essay that provides meaningful context for the buildings and examines how local government and zoning practices guide architecture. A powerful example of the unlimited potential for urban design, Typology offers a new point of view in municipal planning and architecture.

228 pages | 80 color plates, 200 halftones, 720 line drawings | 10 x 12 | © 2015

Reviews

"Books like this reveal the benefits of being an outsider: it enables one to be interested in the norm rather than the exceptional, to be curious about the background buildings that locals overlook or take for granted."
