The Big Idea: Criticality and Practice in Contemporary Architecture
Softcover | 16 x 1.8 x 21.3 cm | 120 pp
Balcony Press | 2006 | 9781890449384
Taking an applied look at big theoretical ideas, this is an accessible read of complex philosophical ideas. It includes a bibliographic reference of critical architectural thinkers - vital information for students and professional designers alike.
This book uses an autobiographical approach to explore issues of how large theoretical ideas influence (or not) day-to-day architectural practice. The author, Scott Johnson, has over the last few decades been privileged to work in rarified environments in Berkeley, New York and Los Angeles where big ideas were emerging. His professional experiences with some of the most important names in the industry are both informative and entertaining in this very personal journey through the overarching themes of contemporary architecture and the discovery of professional practice.
