About the book:

De-Architecture is a book of theory, opinion, and critical history on the subjects of architecture, art (public and private), and community spaces. While it is an outgrowth of the architectural group SITE, it is primarily an overview of the problems of communication in the building arts of this century and a series or proposed solutions.

In his insightful text, and in the wide-ranging illustrations he has chosen to accompany it, author James Wines demonstrates that architecture, the most natural element in our physical environment to convey information about the political, social, and psychological issues of our time, must draw on sources that are relevant to today' disordered, pluralistic society. The last section of the book, a lively portfolio of projects by artists and architects, serves as evidence of the ongoing evolution of a contemporary iconography in a culture devoid of traditional symbols.
