Product description

Review

...there are few books I can think of that describe the emotional engagement with architecture with such acuity. And despite the subject, Bleak Houses is anything but a bleak read.

--Richard Williams, The Times Higher Education

...this is one of the most intriguing, original and gently provocative books on the meaning of architecture for some while.

--Architecture Review

...It's a book that all who not only write on architecture but who also have a genuine interest in the welfare of the historic built environment ought to read.

--Alex Bremner, The Victorian
