Abstract:

"Offers a framework for a provocative history of ideas about beauty as they relate to contemporary thinking on architecture and design. In a world increasingly defined by sumptuous visuality, the concepts of beauty and visual sensation are not mere intellectual exercises but standards that define the very nature of design practice disciplines and that are essential to the emerging worlds of design and architecture in the twenty-first century."--P. [4] of cover.
