Item description for Eisenmanual by Peter Eisenman...

Eisenmanual systematically registers and maps the major theoretical and formal themes in architecture that architect Peter Eisenman has developed in his work over the past forty years. This compact and multilayered volume is a comprehensive handbook to his texts and projects and their simultaneous and overlapping development since his doctoral thesis, "The Formal Basis of Modern Architecture," written in 1963. Literally a printed "hypertext," the manual weaves a selection of 80 texts and 46 projects, both built and unbuilt, through a series of synoptic and conceptual maps, a cartography of the "conceptual city" of Eisenman that also cross reference his work through a series of conceptual fields. The many "outside" influences on his work are included in a matrix of references that both unveils and opens up the complexity of the architect's thinking. An index and a dictionary provide additional ways to approach Eisenman's development of theoretical concepts in relationship to making architecture.

A member of a generation of architects for whom the practice of architecture cannot be separated from thinking or writing about architecture, Eisenman has produced a body of work unparalleled in architecture today. In Eisenmanual, the multiple readings of his work will become accessible and indispensable through its visually friendly reader's guide format.
