About This Item

Cambridge and London: MIT Press, 1972. Folio, dark gray cloth, gilt-lettered spine and cover with inset color photographic insert. Cloth slightly faded with a few faint spots on front cover and discoloration on back cover. Gilt spine and cover lettering bright. An excellent copy. With 240 illustrations: maps, drawings, black and white and color photographs. A seminal and controversial post-modernist work which became a cult book for a generation of architects. "The ugly and the ordinary" everyday city landscape with mass culture, pop-art Las Vegas as a springboard for contemporary architecture and an embrace of popular culture in place of what the authors saw as the dead end functionalism of postwar modernism. Ada Louis Huxtable: "these studies are brilliant... the kind of art history and theory that is rarely produced.". Cloth with Inset. Near Fine. Folio.
