Description - Beyond Description by Ryan Bishop
This book addresses issues of space, historicity, architecture and textuality by focusing on Singapore's singular position in the region and as a global city. The articles consider how various experiences of Singapore, both from within and from outside, help to complicate existing assumptions about global urbanism, postcolonialism, and architectural theory while producing challenging new ideas from a variety of disciplines concerned with how space, historicity, architecture and textuality inform one another. This singular focus is treated from a range of disciplinary perspectives. Contributors include experts in literary and cultural criticism, critical theory, cultural anthropology, history, sociology, economics, architecture and philosophy.
