Resumen del Libro
This is a compelling compilation of essays by international architectural theorists on the relationship of violence to space. With the events of September 11th, the July 7th London bombings, the March 11th Madrid train explosions, and the daily blasts in Baghdad, the question of violence and terrorism is imposing architectural ramifications with renewed urgency. These events did more than just force the world into global preventative measures, they forced architecture to acknowledge its relationship to violence in a pronounced way. A new sense of architectural awareness has been forged as violence is forcing its place as an architectural datum.The wide-ranging contributions in this book approach the question of violence by drawing on a variety of angles and intersections.
