Synopsis

Through a number of theoretical contributions and a series of case studies, this book illustrates and analyzes the different approaches in the 1990s to building in an historic context. These will range from Krier's historicist theories, to the design methods of Foster who has rediscovered the Classical roots of the Modern Movement, in buildings such as the Carre d'Art in Nimes next to one of the finest surviving Roman Temples. The projects selected for the case studies come from throughout Europe. The book will contribute to a continuing debate which has been fuelled by the media and which will remain highly controversial. With the approach of the next milleniumn the search for an appropriate late-twentieth century architecture becomes more urgent as we evaluate past achievements and seek an urban architecture which is the true expression of our age. Following the debasement of the Modern Movement, the upsurge in the conservation movement and the excesses of many Post-Modern buildings, a more sensitive response to new intervention in the historic urban context is developing.
