Hardcover edition also available; see Worldwide 175504. Publisher's description: The Living Tradition of Architecture explores the depth of architecture as it takes flesh in the living tradition of building, dwelling and thinking. This is a timely appraisal of the field by some of its foremost contributors. Beyond modern misconceptions about tradition only relating to things past and conducive to a historicist vision, the essays in this volume reveal tradition as a living continuity and common ground of reference for architecture. This collection of essays brings together world-leading scholars, practicing architects and educators, Alberto Perez-Gomez, Christian Frost, Dagmar Weston, Daniel Libeskind, David Leatherbarrow, Eric Parry, Gabriele Bryant, Joseph Rykwert, Karsten Harries, Kenneth Frampton, Mari Hvattum, Patrick Lynch, Robin Middleton, Stephen Witherford, and Werner Oechslin, in a single celebratory publication edited by Jose de Paiva and dedicated to Dalibor Vesely. This book provides a unique initiative reflecting the group's understanding of the contemporary situation, revealing an ongoing debate of central relevance to architecture.
