By Aaron Betsky

Architecture matters. It matters to cities, the planet, and human lives. How architects design and what they build has an impact that usually lasts for generations. The more we understand architecturethe deeper we probe the decisions and designs that go into making a buildingthe better our world becomes.

Aaron Betsky, architect, author, curator, former museum director, and currently the dean of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, guides readers into the rich and complex world of contemporary architecture. He explores a broad spectrum of topics, from the meaning of domestic space to the spectacle of the urban realm.
