Emmet Blakeney Gleason Professor of History of Art and Architecture at Harvard University Neil Levine gets to the complex history of architectural signifiers in his new book Modern Architecture: Representation and Reality. Through a detailed survey of major works, Levine posits that all modern architects, like other visual artists, have had to grapple with issues of representation. The thesis may sound difficult, but early reviews suggest the book is highly entertaining and readable.
