WRITING ABOUT ARCHITECTURE. Mastering the language of Buildings and Cities.



Este es el título de la obra de Alexandra Lange, una periodista especializada en arquitectura, urbanismo y diseño. Es a la vez profesora en la New York University de crítica de la arquitectura y de allí es de donde ha sacado las bases para escribir este libro. Los capítulos empiezan con ensayos escritos por críticos de la arquitectura de renombre, como el mismísimo Frank Lloyd Wright, para que luego ella desarrolle un discurso a partir de este texto. Se publicó en el 2011 gracias a Princeton Architectural Press.
Sin duda este libro va a ser la próxima entrada en mi interminable lista de libros pendientes de ser leídos.
Pd_ se están sorteando 5 ejemplares en inglés en la página de Dezeen.

This is the title of the book written by Alexandra Lange, a journalist specialized in architecture, urbanism and design. She is, at the same time, professor at New York University of architecture critic and that’s from where she took the bases to write this book. The chapters start with essays written by well-known architecture critic, such as Frank Lloyd Wright, so that afterwards the developed a whole dissertation with that text as starting point. It was published in 2011 thanks to Princeton Architectural Press.

I’m certain that this book will be the next on the line when it comes to book that must be read.

Pd_ Dezeen has opened a competition to give away 5 of these books.
