9780241952771: The Edifice Complex: The architecture of power
Críticas:

Astonishing ... a thrilling and passionately indignant trawl through vanity's most polluted depths (Jonathan Meades Times)

Punchily written ... deftly amusing ... a closely argued, brilliantly marshalled, important book (Tom Rosenthal Daily Mail)

Full of fascinating fact and smart observation ... clever, stimulating and thoughtful (Stephen Bayley Observer)

Essential reading for anyone who cares about the physical world around them (Amanda Levete Independent)

As compelling a read as a popular novel ... it is as though the worlds of academe and the gossip column collide ... funny, acidic, penetrating and provocative (Norman Foster Royal Academy Magazine)

Reseña del editor:

Deyan Sudjic's The Edifice Complex: The Architecture of Power is a fascinating exploration of the language of architecture as an insight into the psychology of power, from tyrants to billionaires.

Why do presidents and prime ministers, tycoons and tyrants share such a fascination with grand designs? Is it to impress or terrify, to wield state power, make a bid for immortality or just satisfy their egos?

From Hitler's vast Chancellery to Saddam Hussein's Mother of all Battles mosque, from Olympic stadiums to Donald Trump's excesses, Deyan Sudjic examines the murky relationship between buildings, money and politics, revealing the power of architecture - and the architecture of power.

'A thrilling and passionately indignant trawl through vanity's most polluted depths'

'An often frightening, sometimes hilarious set of stories of brutality, absurdity and occasionally beauty'
  Evening Standar

'Punchily written ... deftly amusing ... a closely argued, brilliantly marshalled, important book'

'Informed, lively and intelligent ... an asylum of power-mad politicians and Croesus-rich patrons'
  New Statesman

'By turns funny, acidic, penetrating and provocative ... as compelling a read as a popular novel'
  Norman Foster
