About the Author

Marc J. Neveu is Chair of the Department of Architecture at Woodbury University, Los Angeles, USA, and the Executive Editor of the Journal of Architectural Education. Negin Djavaherian is an independent scholar currently residing in Montreal, Canada.


'At a time when architectural theory might go unquestioned and the monologue of the technological paradigm and digital age seem to offer the possibility for an endless agenda and sense of progress, a group of well known scholars address the role of poetics and ethics within architecture providing insight from many and diverse angles. A must read for all those intending to gaze deeper into their own age from a contemporary perspective in architectural theory.' - Federica Goffi, Associate Professor, Architect, PhD Associate Director Graduate Programs Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism Carleton University, Canada 'Architecture's Appeal is a timely reminder of the role of history and theory in a world so infatuated with technology and gratuitous formal explorations. At the very core of these reflections within the book is the belief that our past is relevant, and provides critical insight into new possible realities and roles yet to be invented for the architects of the future.' - Gregory Henriquez, Managing Partner, Henriquez Partners Architects, Canada
