PART-ARCHITECTURE: THE MAISON DE VERRE, DUCHAMP, DOMESTICITY AND DESIRE IN 1930S PARIS. Emma Cheatle. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2016. Copyright 2017. 256 pp. with 102 ills. (10 col.). 25 x 18 cm. LC 2016-2738 ISBN 9781472471697 In English.
Publisher's description: Part-Architecture presents a detailed and original study of Pierre Chareau's Maison de Verre through another seminal modernist artwork, Marcel Duchamp's Large Glass. Aligning the two works materially, historically and conceptually, the book challenges the accepted architectural descriptions of the Maison de Verre, makes original spatial and social accounts of its inhabitation in 1930s Paris, and presents new architectural readings of the Large Glass. Through a rich analysis, which incorporates creative projects into history and theory research, the book establishes new ways of writing about architecture.
