The Good Life: A guided visit to the houses of modernity (English)
Barcelona: Editorial Gustavo Gili, SA, 2001. English ONLY. Softcover. NF. Orange card wraps with color illustration and bw lettering. 207 pp. with bw images throughout. Text in ENGLISH ONLY! "The Good Life takes the reader on a tour of the houses that the 20th century has bequeathed to us, the aim being to free his or her vision of various preconceptions and prejudices of a professional kind. This is a tour that, reclaiming the century's radical plurality, undermines the idea of modernity as the triumphant experience of positivism. The Good Life is an invitation to travel in the imagination, not onlyk to celebrate the diversity of 20th century houses, but also to stimulate the pleasure of thinking, planning and living intensely, to encourage the invention of a house that doesn't yet exist." (from the back cover) With a Prologue, 7 main chapters (well-illustrated), Epilogue, Bibliography, and more.
