Editorial Reviews


"Strikingly original. Amanda Lawrence's detailed analysis of Stirling's buildings and drawings allows readers to follow the architect's design strategies and understand how he employed diverse means to embody them. I have never read such a compelling and persuasive assessment of a 20th-century architect's work. An exemplary study and a model for future studies."—Diane Ghirardo, University of Southern California
(Diane Ghirardo)

 “This is one of the first, serious academic architectural historical and critical treatments of the breadth of James Stirling’s work. Author Amanda Lawrence contributes as well to continued revisions of modernism and postmodernism, positing a theory based not on stylistic affinity but on compositional structures and evolving notions of reference. There is much here to draw upon, as well as new knowledge and understanding of  Stirling himself.”—Daniel Abramson, Tufts University
(Daniel Abramson)

“an admirably close analysis of both Stirling’s work and decades of its critical reception."—Metropolis

Book Description

The first critical study of one of modernism's most influential architects, presenting examinations of six of Stirling's projects and challenging previously accepted stylistic classifications of his work.
