Riassunto: The late Robin Evans was a historian whose writings covered a wide range of architectural concerns: society's involvement in building types; spatial relations; aspects of geometry; and modes of projection. This text brings together eight of Robin Evans's essays, including "Mies van der Rohe's Paradoxical Symmetries" and others that were first published in the "AA Files" series. Written over a period of 20 years from 1970 to 1990, the essays are representative of his diverse body of work. The essays are supported by an introduction by Mohsen Mostafavi, a survey of Evans's writings by Robin Middleton, and an annotated bibliography by Richard Difford.
Recensione: Some of the best essays by the late architectural historian Robin Evans are collected in this anthology. The individual pieces are written with insight and humor, and they possess the commendable quality of often opening the reader's eyes about subjects we encounter everyday but probably don't spend much time thinking about. Most of the essays focus on how buildings have been influenced by the needs of people, and some of Evans's insights, such as his explanations of why certain societies develop buildings with hallways, are not only informative but entertaining.
