The poor pictures did not do the book justice. With actual photographs or better drawings, this would have illustrated the points and concepts of the narrative.

A short, provocative and fascinating book. I was particularly drawn to the theorization of functionalism. The relationship between form and function was powerfully drawn in this book. There was also some powerful theorization of modernism and postmodernism. While postmodernity was theorized in a superficial way, modernism and modernity is configured and discussed in an intricate and dynamic fashion. A fine book that provides the opportunity for further debate and discussion.

Fascinating to anyone interested in the arts--particularly the modernist movement. The drawings are superb.

Cortito y sintético. La bibliografía anotada del final es un excelente lugar para adentrarse en modernismo, postmodernismo y sus detalles. Recomendado.
