Reviews

Declaring architecture to be a global system, Raisbeck describes the system, its ecologies of practice, and how those ecologies interact. The global system is the context in which all architects operate, regardless of the size of their practice, he says, and while there have been many studies on globalization during the 21st century, the changes that globalization has wrought on architecture, an increasingly global industry, have mostly gone undocumented. Within an institutional logics framework, he investigates the degree to which architectural design is a domain of knowledge that is in crisis, and the extent to which the territory and agency of architecture are eroding. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. -- Annotation (c)2019 * (protoview.com) *
