Description

Classic Columns presents the highlights from forty years of writing about architecture. These pieces are thoughtful, original, and cogently expressed. Architecture and the Orders are here, of course – but so are observations on the contemporary world, how people live and how societies are organised. The main themes are tradition, Classicism, place-making, new housing, heritage, and globalisation. All the contributions are characteristically clear-thinking and thought-provoking, and might otherwise be lost in the back numbers of various publications. 

“This book is essential reading for all who want to fully understand the architecture of late 20th and early 21st century Britain. Adam is that rare thing - a talented practitioner who is also an able writer. No one is in a better position to tell the story of Britain’s often little known and misunderstood 'alternative’ modern architecture – one based on tradition and the verities of Classicism yet which embraces the opportunities offered by contemporary technology and faces the diverse social and urban challenges of the age.”Dan Cruickshank, Architectural Historian

"Informative, stimulating, and provocative over four decades, Robert Adam starts architectural conversations that you would like to continue."Paul Finch, Programme Director, World Architecture Festival
