REFLECTIONS ON ARCHITECTURE, SOCIETY AND POLITICS: SOCIAL AND CULTURAL TECTONICS IN THE 21ST CENTURY. Graham Cairns. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2016. Copyright 2017. 282 pp. 25 x 18 cm. ISBN 9781472456083 In English.
Publisher's description: Reflections on Architecture, Society and Politics brings together a series of thirteen interview-articles by Graham Cairns in collaboration with some of the most prominent polemic thinkers and critical practitioners from the fields of architecture and the social sciences, including Noam Chomsky, Peggy Deamer, Robert A.M. Stern, Daniel Libeskind and Kenneth Frampton. Each chapter explores the relationship between architecture and socio-political issues through discussion of architectural theories and projects, citing specific issues and themes that have led to, and will shape, the various aspects of the current and future built environment. Ranging from Chomsky's examination of the US-Mexico border as the architecture of oppression to Robert A.M. Stern's defence of projects for the Disney corporation and George W. Bush, this book places politics at the center of issues within contemporary architecture.
