Architecture and/or Capitalism

Architecture and/or Capitalism

Peggy Deamer, a professor at the Yale School of Architecture, has just come out with a book of this title.  It addresses many of the issues we have confronted this semester, particularly the role of architecture as a social reform tool within a capitalist society. This links to a discussion about the book.  Take a look, especially Sean.  There is some discussion of the aesthetics of architecture vs. the politics of it.
