Robert Hughes once described Michael Sorkin as “unique in America––brave, principled, highly informed and fiercely funny.” All Over the Map confirms all of these superlatives as Sorkin assaults “the national security city, with its architecture of manufactured fear.”

About the Author:

Michael Sorkin is an award-winning architect and Distinguished Professor of Architecture and Director of the Graduate Program in Urban Design at the City College of New York. His books include The Next Jerusalem, After the World Trade Center, Twenty Minutes in Manhattan and All Over the Map.

Review:

“Easily one of the best architecture critics around ... Sorkin is a flaneur with a sense of public purpose.”—Chris Hall, Guardian

“America’s most invigorating writer on architecture.”—Observer

“Sorkin is one of the most intelligent writers on architecture today.”—Library Journal

“Sorkin is a formidable opponent of the banal, the ugly, the stupid and the vapidly posturing which, he argues, are all around us.”—Publishers Weekly

“[A]n intense mediation on the role of democracy in architecture, the role of the critic in that democracy and the dilemmas facing an architect who wants to make a difference (by working with that democracy) but needs to make a living (by pleasing an economic and political elite) ... One of the most impressive collections of contemporary criticism you could read.”—Art Review

All Over the Map is a pleasure to read”—Times Literary Supplement
