Abstract
 
Description
The automobile has brought about changes to the landscape that are nothig short of revolutionary. The dramatic reconfiguration of cities and the countryside to accomodate our taste for freedom of movement has been matched by a change in the way buildings themselves have been planned. Today, CAAD and car-building techniques have opened up new possibilities for architectural design and this book, edited by the London-based architect Alex de Rijke, argues taht the influence of the car on architectural and ruan thinking is greater than ever. De Rijke's selection of ideas, photographs, texts and completed projects by a variety of architects explores the parellel development of cars and architecture during the second half of the twentieth century, and provides a compelling manifesto for the future of building design. - from Amzon
