Architecture's Appeal: How Theory Informs Architectural Praxis by Marc J. Neveu

This collection of previously unpublished essays from a diverse range of well-known scholars and architects builds on the architectural tradition of phenomenological hermeneutics as developed by Dalibor Veseley and Joseph Rykwert and carried on by David Leatherbarrow, Peter Carl and Alberto Pérez-Gómez.

Taking an interdisciplinary approach and drawing on ideas from beyond the architectural canon, contributors including Kenneth Frampton, David Leatherbarrow, Juhani Pallasmaa, Karsten Harries, Steven Holl, Indra Kagis McEwen, Paul Emmons, and Louise Pelletier offer new insights and perspectives on questions such as the following:

Given the recent fascination with all things digital and novel, what is the role of history and theory in contemporary architectural praxis?

Is authentic meaning possible in a technological environment that is so global and interconnected?

What is the nature and role of the architect in our shared modern world?

How can these questions inform a new model of architectural praxis?

Architecture's Appeal is a thought-provoking book which will inspire further scholarly inquiry and act as a basis for discussion in the wider field as well as graduate seminars in architectural theory and history.
