A sharp and lively text that covers issues in depth but not to the point that they become inaccessible to beginning students, An Introduction to Architectural Theory is the first narrative history of this period, charting the veritable revolution in architectural thinking that has taken place, as well as the implications of this intellectual upheaval. * The first comprehensive and critical history of architectural theory over the last forty years * surveys the intellectual history of architecture since 1968, including criticisms of high modernism, the rise of postmodern and poststructural theory, critical regionalism and tectonics * Offers a comprehensive overview of the significant changes that architectural thinking has undergone in the past fifteen years * Includes an analysis of where architecture stands and where it will likely move in the coming years
