The Iconic Building.

The Iconic Building.


Jencks, Charles.

Cl. New York 2005

Book ID: 67024

Focuses on the iconic landmark building, a new type of architecture that has emerged in the last decade to challenge the traditional architectural monument. Driven by the competing demands of practicality and provocativeness, the architect has arrived at a new convention, the enigmatic signifier, which suggests many meanings without naming any of them. Practitioners include Gehry, Koolhaas, Eisenman and others.
