losers - 3:AM Magazine
At least half the architects mentioned in this catalog of failure are names you've never heard of. Remarkably, Timothy Brittain-Catlin turns the story of these people he calls losers into one of the most compelling books about architecture I've read in a long time. Timothy Brittain-Catlin's Bleak Houses is unique for being the first history of architects who, by conventional standards, have been considered losers or failures. By telling the story of those who just fell outside the canon, or outside the circle of fame traced by a triumphalist history, Brittain-Catlin maps out an alternative architectural history without teleological narratives about style, change, and influence and thus offers a quieter and more modest way of looking at buildings that can relate much more closely to our own experiences.
Witty and captivating, with an interesting touch of melancholy, it makes you think and see the world differently. Search Search. Search Advanced Search close Close.
