ARCHITECTURE AND PARTICIPATION PETER BLUNDELL-JONES PDF

Pinterest Peter Blundell Jones celebrated the depth and complexity of the modern movement. Rather than focus on the buildings conventionally presented as exemplars of the modern movement and celebrated for their technological advancements, he became more interested in exploring the messy context of the relationship with people. While his publications provided a new perspective on alternative strands of modernism, he became conscious that they only adjusted the existing canon of modernist heroes. To provide a different reading and to celebrate the depth and complexity of the modern movement, Peter later settled on a case-study approach, focusing on individual buildings. This resulted in two volumes of Modern Architecture Through Case Studies and , the second a collaboration with Eamonn Canniffe.

Peter illustrated how daily and other rituals were and continue to be central to the shaping of our environment. The book demonstrated that he was eager to share his ideas, arguments and insights, and open out beyond the narrowly defined boundaries of the professions.
