The Architect And The Public: On George Baird's Contribution To Architecture
|Author||Roberto Damiani Ed.|
Presenting a range of original perspectives on the theoretical work of Canadian architect George Baird, this publication constructs for the first time a critical framework of his contribution to architectural discourse over a period of more than 50 years. The influence of his writing on more recent scholarly work is also addressed. The book includes previously unpublished essays and interviews with key protagonists, among them Peter Eisenman and Kenneth Frampton, who have enjoyed intellectual exchanges with Baird. In total, eighteen contributors converge on Baird’s complex career as an example of the architect’s public engagement in contemporary society.
