Item description for Lessons from Bernard Rudofsky: Life as a Voyage by Architekturzentrum Wien...

What we need is not a new way of building but a new way of living---sothe subtitle of one of Rudofsky's last works. Settingout from the assumption that the design of every single room in a house is based on a physical function: one place to lie the body down to rest, another to take in food, a third to step into a tub to bath, Bernard Rudofsky (1905-88) believed architecture served to stimulate the senses and refineeveryday culture. His conception of architecture and designis more topical today than ever. Internationally renowned in his day for the exhibitions he created for MoMA in the 1940s and 1950s, today he is remembered above all for his sharp-tongued, witty writings, which still speak to a broad audience. "Lessons fromBernard Rudofsky" is more than a collection of essays by experts andintroduction to the complex concept of architecture and living of acosmopolitan and unconventional thinker;the rich visual materialconveys his philosophy: "I believe that sensory pleasure should take precedence over intellectual pleasure in art and architecture."
