BOOKSHOP BARNIE: Robert Adam on The Globalisation of Modern Architecture: The impact of politics, economics and social change on architecture and urban design since 1990
Based on the principle that design unavoidably follows social change, politics and economics, Robert Adam's analysis in The Globalisation of Modern Architecture casts a new light on recent building. In Adam's view, globalisation is driving out the uniqueness and character of cities and buildings, reducing them to a monotonous regularity. But does architecture and do architects nowadays really lack an inner conviction, leaving them prey to the vicissitudes of outside forces?
Tonight Adam will be defending his thesis in front of our live audience, and you too will have the opportunity to put your questions to him during the debate.
