AUTHOR

Forty, Adrian

SUMMARY

"At times, one also feels that Adrian Forty is examining his sources by the yard. A central aim of the book is to expose the way in which polemical intentions can be disguised by neutral diction, so its even-handed approach is entirely understandable; but this leaves little room for value judgements. Individual theorists are seen as vehicles for an impersonal process of linguistic development rather than the authors of propositions to be challenged or verified. So if you think, for example, that Semper deserves deeper consideration than Venturi (or even vice versa), then this is not the book for you. But then that is really a matter of taste, for which, as we have seen, there is no accounting."Forty, Adrian is the author of 'Words and Buildings A Vocabulary of Modern Architecture' with ISBN 9780500284704 and ISBN 0500284709.
