The work of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari has been inspirational for architects and architectural theorists in recent years. It has influenced the design work of architects as diverse as Greg Lynn and David Chipperfield, and is regularly cited by avant-gardist architects and by students, but usually without being well understood. The first collaboration between Deleuze and Guattari was Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia, which was taken up as a manifesto for the post-structuralist life, and was associated with the spirit of the student revolts of 1968. Their ideas promote creativ

Specifically for architects, the third title in the Thinkers for Architects series examines the relevance of Luce Irigaray’s work for architecture. Eight thematic chapters explore the bodily, spatio-temporal, political and cultural value of her ideas for making, discussing and experiencing architecture. In particular, each chapter makes accessible Irigaray’s ideas about feminine and masculine spaces with reference to her key texts. Irigaray’s theory of ‘sexed subjects’ is explained in order to show how sexuality informs the different ways in which men and women construct and inhabi

Following architect Steve Schaecher’s groundbreaking Outhouses by Famous Architects and Mobile Homes by Famous Architects (Pomegranate, 2000 and 2002), we present his new array of historical inquiries. In deft ink-and-watercolor illustrations and knowledgeable prose, Schaecher informs each of his twenty-nine booths with the sensibility of the architect who supposedly designed it. Schaecher’s books are not mere parodies. While he envisions humorous applications for the talents of Palladio, Le Corbusier, Wright, and other giants, his watercolors are true reflections of the architects’ s
