Architecture, Discourse, and Modernity in America

The Portfolio and the Diagram is about the changing ways architects see, read, and use the words and images of architectural publications. Architects today do not use the glossy photographs of magazines in the same way that nineteenth-century architects mobilized the drawings in the grand folios. The images have changed, and so have the ways in which they are used.The book begins with an outline of the academic discipline and the mimetic practice of the portfolio, established in America during the late nineteenth century.
