This follow-up to Kate Nesbitt's best-selling anthology Theorizing A New Agenda collects twenty-eight essays that address architectural theory from the mid-1990s through the present. A. Krista Sykes offers an overview of the myriad approaches and attitudes adopted by architects and architectural theorists during this era. Multiple themesincluding the impact of digital technologies on processes of architectural design, production, materiality, and representation; the implications of globalization and networks of information; the growing emphasis on sustainable and green architecture; and the phenomenon of the starchitect and iconic architectureappear against a background colored by architectural theory as it existed from the 1960s on, in a period of transition (if not crisis) that centers around the perceived abyss between theory and practice. Theory's transitional state persists today, rendering its immediate history particularly relevant to contemporary thought and practice.
