内容説明

Gender and architecture is a growing area of teaching and research - however there are very few books devoted entirely to its study. This series of case study essays is designed with the student in mind, providing a framework where gender can be explored further. Chronologically structured over the period 1500-2000, from the birth of the modern through to the post-modern, the book looks at how architecture is gendered in terms of its profession, its uses and its meaning in the West. It also includes a contrasting essay on the Orient. The essays include contributions from literary and cultural historians as well as architectural historians, with as much attention paid to the historical analysis of masculinity as to femininity.
