Over more than two decades of writing, American critic, author and educator Aaron Betsky has used his knowledge of architecture and urbanism to argue for modernist design as a way of making ourselves at home in the ever-changing world of modernity.
In At Home in Sprawl, using such disparate examples as California and the Netherlands, Betsky offers possible building blocks for ‘better’ sprawl. He also believes that buildings are no longer enough to make us at home in the modern world, and that architects must look beyond such structures to landscapes, interiors and imaginary structures to find appropriate and critical architecture.
