Abstract

About the book:
This volume presents a series of essays by leading critics on art, design, architecture and culture.

All are inspired by the revolutionary work of Reyner Banham, who continues to be one of the greatest influences on Design and Architecture today.

Integrating the study of pop art, industrial design and material culture for the first time, Banham's brilliant analyses of subjects - such as automobile styling, mobile homes, science fiction films, and our fondness for gadgets - anticipated many of our contemporary preoccupations.
