Description - Commodification and Spectacle in Architecture by William S. Saunders

It stake out a variety of positions in the debate over the extent to which it is possible- or desirable-to escape from, resist, or suggest plausible alternatives to the dominant culture of consumer capitalism. Rejecting any dreamy nostalgia for an idealized present or past in which design is completely divorced from commerce-and, in some cases, celebrating the pleasures of spectacle-the individual essays range from indictments of particular architects and critiques of the profession to broader concerns about what the phenomenon of commodification means for the practice of democracy and the health of society.
