Book Description

This is Not Architecture assembles architectural writers of different kinds - historians, theorists, journalists, computer game designers, technologists, film-makers and architects - to discuss the characteristics, cultures, limitations and bias of the different kinds of media, and to build up an argument as to how this complex culture of representations is constructed.



Kester Rattenbury is an architectural writer and teacher. She trained as an architect before doing a PhD on the coverage of architecture in the UK national press, and then going on to work as an architectural journalist. She now works as a freelance architectural writer and reviewer, and teaches a design to architectural students. She lives and works in London.


'This is a thought-provoking book. Much of the argument is very accessible.' - Building Design
