Editorial Reviews


""Architecture of the Everyday" edited by Yale professors and New York-based architects Steven Harris and Deborah Berke, demonstrates a more fiercely articulated political agenda in a collection of what are mostly obtuse, academic essays. Behind several of the essays is the argument that everyday or generic architecture, as lived in by most of us, resists capitalist demands to keep up with the Joneses. By limiting their discussion primarily to issues of class, the essayists-and the editors who chose them-have narrowly selected their audience." -- Architectural Record

For Steven Harris, design inspiration comes not from architectural icons but form "anonymous" buildings like barns, factories and sheds. Ergo "Architecture of the Everyday," the book he edited for Princeton Architectural Press. For the actor John Leguizamo, Harris designed an office using stell scaffolding and plastic wall panels. -- New York Times
