The Formal Basis of Modern Architecture: Dissertation 1963
Lars Muller Publishers, 2006. First edition. Oblong quarto, original black cloth. Inscribed by Peter Eisenman on the title page. In fine condition. A reproduction of the architect's dissertation at Cambridge, Eisenman confronts historicism with theory and the analysis of form, whose distinguishing features he regards as the foundation of architectural composition. Eisenman illustrates his observations with numerous, extremely precise hand drawings. This striking document, with its idiosyncratic photographs, fully deserves to be published here, for the first time, in a faithful reproduction of the original. In an afterword, Peter Eisenman discusses this remarkable starting point of his practical and theoretical work.
