Architectural Composition by Rob Krier
Home Contact Us Help Free delivery worldwide. Description Rob Krier is a unique voice in today’s architectural discourse through his commitment to developing a relevant and pragmatic theory of architecture based on his own experience and observations of architectural practice and opposed to the easy, abstract theorising so common in contemporary architectural writing.
Together with his brother Leon, he has perfected a form of presentation in which the potency of his thinking finds its perfect counterpoint in detailed drawings and sketches which argue his case visually through the power of example. Following the success of his widely acclaimed “Urban Space”, a work which looked at the problems of our cities from a historical, theoretical and practical standpoint, Krier now applies his particular, highly influential mode of didactic criticism to contemporary architecture in continuing search for fundamental architectural truths.
Architectural Composition is both a theoretical and visual analysis which clearly illustrates the creative process which informs Krier’s vision and praxis. The culmination of a lifetime’s thought and experience by one of Europe’s most important architectural theorists, it is without doubt a major achievement and is a standard work of reference for both students and practising architects. The book, published for the first time in by Academy Editions in London, has been supported by funds from the Fond zur Forderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung der Republik Osterreich, and it was carried out at Krier’s former Institut fur Gestaltungslehre at the Technische Universitat in Vienna.
