From the Publisher
The material and cultural world in which we now live perhaps
represents the end of a process created out of the Enlightenment
and the Industrial Revolution. The battles fought over class,
ideology and language are represented most clearly in the explosion
of new building types during the Century of Revolutions.
Lavishly illustrated with photographs, drawings, maps and plans,
Buildings and Power analyses architectural form, function
and space to explore the reproduction and the subversion of power
in the modern city.
