The Edifice Complex

  • $ 27.00

A narrative analysis of the role played by the wealthy and powerful classes in architecture argues that architecture must be understood as an expression of power and propaganda rather than art, exploring a range of structures and large-scale building schemes commissioned by such figures as Hitler, Rockefeller, and Saddam Hussein as part of their efforts to wield control and shape national identity.
