Book Description New York : Rizzoli, 1985. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Bryant, Richard (illustrator). 1st American Ed. From the inside cover: "Everyone, to some extent, designs their own house; everyone needs to personalize the environment around them. Yet few people have succeeded as thoroughly as the critic and architect Charles Jencks in his Thematic House. Using as his basis an 1840s London town house, Jencks has created a total environment based on a symbolic programme accessible to all- the physical world of the cosmos, planets, sun, moon and seasons- yet with a rigour and attention to detail few could imagine. Towards a Symbolic Architecture is a powerful argument in favour of symbolic design. The book opens with a forceful exposition by Jencks of his belief in the importance of a meaningful environment. Jencks then makes a brief journey through the stages of his architectural development before arriving at the Thematic House. Room by room descriptions are profusely illustrated in colour (300 illustrations) with specially commissioned photographs by Richard Bryant. The result is one of the most detailed expositions of a building in the history of architectural publishing a book for anyone interested in houses, and for anyone bored with the general anonymity of our present environment.".
