Analysis and Theory of Modern Architecture: The Modern Interior
Explores the critical transformation in the relationship between interior and exterior space in modern architecture. This transformation is most evident in the domestic space, which ceases to be simply bounded territory in opposition to the outside, whether physical or social. An analysis of modern houses is used as a frame to register contemporary displacements of the relationship between private and public space and the convolution of boundaries between inside and outside, instigated by the emerging reality of the technologies of communication, including newspaper, telephone, radio, film, and television.
