Название: The Destruction of Memory: Architectural and Cultural Warfare
Размер: 13,5 mb
n The Destruction of Memory, Robert Bevan examines the effects of conflict on architecture through a wide range of examples. These include the razing of Aztec cities by Cortez, the clashes between Islam and Hinduism in India, the Holocaust, the Chinese destruction of Tibetan Lhasa and the attack on the World Trade Center in New York. He argues that these incidents were not mere collateral damage, as some might claim: they were deliberate acts of destruction, an attack not only on the architecture, but also on the cultural memory of a nation.
Robert Bevan is former editor of the British periodical Building Design and writes regularly on architectural, design and housing issues for national newspapers in the U.K.
