Architecture Words 13: Flash in the Pan


In this collection of mediations on what Baudelaire championed (and Michael Fried chastised) as presentness, Sylvia Lavin investigates the convergence of notions such as liveness, the provisional and the obsolete in revealing qualities of the contemporary. Three sets of essays explore different forms of architectural time, particularly as they shape the differences between history, theory and criticism as genres of writing.
