THE LETTERS OF COLIN ROWE: FIVE DECADES OF CORRESPONDENCE. Colin Rowe. Artifice Books on Architecture, London, 2016. 560 pp. 25 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781908967534 In English.
Due date: September 2016. Publisher's description: Spanning a period of over half a century, from the early 1940s until his death in 1999, Colin Rowe wrote a multitude of letters to his parents in England and to friends Henry Russell Hitchcock and Ernst Gombrich; to colleagues Stanford Anderson, Robert Maxwell, Michael Spens, Alan Colquhoun, Alvin Boyarsky, John Miller; to architects Louis Kahn and Peter Eisenman; and most intimately and candidly, to his brother, sister-in-law, and nephews in Oxford, England. Informal and elegant ruminations, they detail Rowe's life in Austin, Ithaca, Rome, and Washington addressing a wide range of subjects from furniture, landscapes, politics, history, education, and ageing, to architecture and the urban condition. Resounding with wit and wisdom, each is written in the incomparable style for which Rowe is justifiably famous. Professor Anthony Eardley introduces and edits the book with Daniel Naegele, architect, writer and Associate Professor of Architecture at Iowa State University.
