learning architecture


a PhD in live projects and architectural education

And nineteen pence


I’m reading Panayotis Tournikiotis’ fascinating book The Historiography of Modern Architecture today, and finding countless references to key texts that contributed to our cultural definition of twentieth century architecture. One book I’d love to own that Tournikiotis cites is the catalogue to the 1932 New York exhibition The International Style. AbeBooks has a few copies listed, including this one. Why is it £2216.19? Mint condition, and signed by Philip Johnson, no less.
