As I Was Saying, Volume 2

As I Was Saying, Volume 2


By Colin Rowe

Edited by Alexander Caragonne





Colin Rowe has achieved legendary status as one of a handful of outstanding studio teachers of architecture and urban design to emerge within the last two generations. His writings reveal the powerful insight and dispassionate, authoritative intelligence that mark him as one of the preeminent architectural thinkers of this perplexing half century.

Divided into three volumes, in more or less chronological order, As I Was Saying includes articles, essays, eulogies, lectures, reviews, and memoranda. Some appeared only in obscure journals, and many are published here for the first time.

  • One imagines blood in the study. If so, it was worth his pain and our patience. For here at last are no less than three volumes of Rowe's papers, written since 1953...Three volumes are not enough: I want more.
