Peter Eisenman began by writing a "text" every time he built a house which decribed the process of conceptualising the house. In this volume, aspects of Eisenman's early work are discussed in relation to his subsequent work. The book also documents a change in Eisenman's theory. From a position represented by his first houses, in which he sought to rid the structure of any prior association to meaning (such as in the "country house") by confounding a person's expectation at every stage and in every detail, Eisenman moves to an architecture that seeks to incorporate more contextual realities. An essay by Rosalind Krauss chronicles the shift in Eisenman's work from essence and centering in the early houses to the idea of fiction and decentering in his later work. Manfredo Tafuri presents the work in the light of psychological discourse and motivation.
