LEFEBVRE. Stanek Lukasz. Henri Lefebvre on Space: Architecture, Urban Research, and the Production of Theory

Univ. of Minnesota Press

Pap. 2011

Book ID: 88033

In this innovative work, Lukasz Stanek explicitly confronts both the philosophical and the empirical foundations of Henri Lefebvre's oeuvre, especially his direct involvement in the fields of urban development, planning, and architecture. Countering the prevailing view, which reduces Lefebvre's theory of space to a projection of his philosophical positions, Stanek argues that Lefebvre's work grew out of his concrete engagement with everyday practices of dwelling in postwar France and his exchanges with architects and planners.
