About this title


The Eisenmanual is the first comprehensive presentation of writings by and about Peter Eisenman, arguably the most significant architect working today. Likely to remain the definitive work on the subject for some years to come, the book analyses the whole spectrum of subjects covered in this architect / philosopher's oeuvre. Seminal texts are included that show how his theories have developed over time and how his versatile theoretical approach is continually changing to keep abreast of contemporary thinking as well as anticipating future discoveries. Also included are writings contributed by other contemporary philosophers including, Jacques Derrida, Mark Taylor, John Rajchman, Greg Lynn, Jeff Kipnis, Sanford Kwinter and the architectural historians Michael Hayes and Anthony Vidler who provide an in-depth academic analysis of the theories of this architect and thinker. In addition, two recent interviews with the architect conducted by Robert Somol and Andrew Benjamin are featured, as well as two extensive bibliographies. The volume is completed by six of his major projects including Banyoles; Rebstockpark, Frankfurt; DAAP, Cincinnati and Columbus Convention Centre. Through the interviews and writing featured here it is clear that Eisenman is conducting a methodical, almost scientific investigation into architectural thinking, the subject which he has chosen to examine to the limits and beyond. The first comprehensive presentation of writings by and about Peter Eisenman. Arguably the most influential architect / philosopher working today. Includes analyses by major contemporary philosophers and architectural historians. Features two recent interviews conducted by Robert Somol and Andrew Benjamin
