Abstract:

"The follow-up to his critically acclaimed book A-frame, Chad Randl's Revolving Architecture explores the history of this unique building type, investigating the cultural forces that have inspired people to design and inhabit them. Revolving Architecture is packed with a variety of fantastic structures: a jail that kept inmates under the warden's constant surveillance, glamorous revolving restaurants, tuberculosis treatment wards, houses, theaters, and even a contemporary residential building whose full-floor apartments circle independently of each other. International examples from the late 1800s through the present demonstrate the variety and innovation of these dynamic structures."--Jacket.
