Textbooks

  1. Olfactory Architectures

    Smell is a sense most architects have engaged with at some point in their work: whether designing a house, a residential care home or the industrial kitchen for a commercial restaurant, the ventilation of rooms and removal of strong and potentially unpleasant odours is a well-rehearsed practice. Yet in addition to the annoying smells, olfaction also offers many opportunities that have traditionally been overlooked, and it’s not just in architecture but right across the built environment professions.

News

  1. Peter Larkham Discusses New Title: Alternative Visions of Post-War Reconstruction

    The history of post Second World War reconstruction has recently become an important field of research around the world; Alternative Visions of Post-War Reconstruction is a provocative work that questions the orthodoxies of twentieth century design history. Co-editor, Peter Larkham, sat down with Routledge to discuss the book's significance and his interest in mid-twentieth century urban design and city planning, particularly the period between the start of the Second World War to the mid-sixties.   

  2. Elizabeth Darling Discusses Denby’s “Europe Rehoused”

    Europe Rehoused was one of the most influential housing texts of the 1930s, and is still widely cited. Written by the housing consultant Elizabeth Denby (1894-1965) it offered a survey of the nearly two decades of social housing built across Europe since the end of World War One, with the aim of informing British policy makers; as a reviewer declared it has a decidedly propagandist flavor.  Elizabeth Darling sat down with Routledge to discuss the importance of re-issuing Europe Rehoused and her experience writing the introduction of the book's new editon.
