Architecture Books – Week 11/2022
The latest review on A Weekly Dose of Architecture Books:
Two British Biographies: Ian Nairn: Words in Place by Gillian Darley and David McKie (Five Leaves Publications, 2013) and Reyner Banham Revisited by Richard J. Williams (Reaktion Books, 2021).

The famous "Strada Novissima" went from the Corderie in the Arsenale to Pier 2 at Fort Mason. These photos of the final product and construction in San Fran … were found in a special Spring 1982 issue of Archetype: The Magazine of Architecture and Other Arts that I recently found at @stoutbooks: (click through to see all images)
