Caruso, Adam

Pap. Amsterdam 2010

Book ID: 85221

According to the author and architect Adam Caruso, the concept of quality cannot be defined in the absence of values. According to Caruso, the decline of social values became visible in the arts during the 19th century under such artists as Ruskin and Turner. Within their practices, these artists attempted to compensate for their loss of certainty. Here, the author demonstrates to the reader that this principle is applicable to contemporary architecture in order that the discipline can retain its relevance as an important cultural area.
