Title: File under Architecture
Publisher: MIT press, Cambridge
Publication Date: 1974
Book Condition: As New
Large octavo, 117 pages printed on brown kraft paper. Printed corrugated boards. - First edition. Early publication by the architectural critic of the New York Times. "I am an architect who has neither designed nor built any buildings nor has the inclination to do so. I call myself an architect purely out of the comic conceit which is all that remains of the Western architectural tradition. Buildings have such short life spans nowadays, and few bother to look at them anyway. Planning schemes must be revised each year, and still can't keep up. Last winter's cosmic-comical conceptual designs are forgotten with the appearance of the new spring line. Books last longer, take up less space, are easier to take care of, make better gifts than do most buildings. In the last analysis, architecture is not a very highly evolved state of mind." H.M.
