Architecture and the Sites of History is an unusual and important book, presenting the complex nature of the history of buildings and cities. It proposes a radical historical agenda based on political and intellectual concerns, showing that the contradictory character of architecture and cities can be grasped only through the confrontation of different interpretations. Architecture is presented here as an active process, inviting the reader to puzzle over its content and meaning. The essays presented in this book, specially commissioned from sixteen different authors, cover a diverse range of subjects. Some historical, some theoretical; they explore architectural culture and everyday culture from the classical ancient world to today's deconstructivism.
