archithese reader. Critical Positions in Search of Postmodernity, 1971–1976

This publication presents a selection of ground-breaking contributions, grouped thematically in a new way, which originally appeared in the journal archithese, accompanied by critical essays by contemporary authors.

The positions gathered here are exemplary for the pluralist approach and thematic openness characteristic for the way in which the art historian Stanislaus von Moos compiled the journal in its founding phase. 

The thematic spectrum ranges from historicism, realism concepts in architecture, urbanism, user-oriented approaches to interest in informal and spontaneous building.

With contributions by: Irina Davidovici, Samia Henni, Torsten Lange, Gabrielle Schaad, Marie Theres Stauffer, Stanislaus von Moos.

Buchgestaltung: Eliot Gisel and common-interest (Nina Paim, Mariachiara De Leo)
