Emergence of the Interior by Charles Rice

Book Description

Taking a radical position counter to many previous histories and theories of the interior, domesticity and the home, The Emergence of the Interior considers how the concept and experience of the domestic interior have been formed from the beginning of the nineteenth century. It considers the interior's emergence in relation to the thinking of Walter Benjamin and Sigmund Freud, and, through case studies, in architecture's trajectories toward modernism. The book argues that the interior emerged with a sense of 'doubleness', being understood and experienced as both a spatial and an image-based condition. Incorporating perspectives from architecture, critical history and theory, and psychoanalysis, The Emergence of the Interior will be of interest to academics and students of the history and theory of architecture and design, social history, and cultural studies.

Post-Traumatic Urbanism by Charles Rice Post-Traumatic Urbanism, Paperback (September 2010)

The special issue gathers a range of creative and provocative contributions to examine the urban impact of trauma. These contributions go beyond architecture's agency as a reflex action in disaster response to probe the wider disciplinary and practical questions of design in the aftermath.
