Acerca de


Discusses the influence of the teachings of Walter Gropius at Harvard during the forties on modern world architecture.


"The Decorated Diagram is an intellectual's version of From Bauhaus to Our House.... Relying on a series of breathtaking sophisticated formal analyses, Herdeg concludes that most of today's buildings are 'curiously passionless' because they are built by former students of Gropius.... Herdeg's brilliant essay cuts across realms of modern, latemodern, and postmodern into a far more exciting and illuminating sphere."
- Sarah Williams, Architectural Record
"Among the more devastating comparisons are Johnson's and Franzen's respective facade designs for apartment buildings at 1001 and 800 Fifth Avenue with to Corbusier's Besnos House, Johnson's Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery with Schinkel's Altes Museum, and Barnes's master plan for the S.U.N.Y campus at Purchase with Thomas Jefferson's University of Virginia. Never in any doubt, the final score is Harvard zero and History three. Herdeg possesses a keen eye and an incisive style. He is at his best in these critiques."
- Mary N. Woods, Progressive Architecture
