Words and Buildings is a study that will change and enrich the way we think and talk about architecture. It is essential reading for anyone concerned with architecture and culture in the modern era. Chapters investigate the language of modernism, language and drawing, masculine and feminine architecture, language metaphors, science in architecture and the social properties of architecture. A vocabulary of key words such as Character, Form, History and space, locates each words modern meaning within a historical and theoretical framework, and sets out its development and relevance for architects, historians, philosophers, critics and the users of buildings themselves.
