Whether castigating the sorry performance of the architectural avant-garde, considering the nature of place in globalized culture, or providing mock instructions for entering a high-security environment, these writings make a powerful and provocative case for architecture and urban design to re-engage with the lives and societies from which they have become increasingly detached.
“Sorkin is one of the most intelligent writers on architecture today.”
“Sorkin is a formidable opponent of the banal, the ugly, the stupid and the vapidly posturing which, he argues, are all around us.”
“Easily one of the best architecture critics around ... Sorkin is a flâneur with a sense of public purpose.”
