History of Thresholds

In stock (1000 items available)
A History of Thresholds: Life, Death and Rebirth uses the threshold as a guiding thread to explore the meaning and importance that humans have invested in built spaces. The book is a visual narrative about the life, death and – eventually – rebirth of these thresholds: from the Ancient Greeks to the emergence of the private domain and the transparency of contemporary architecture, which seems to diminish the liminal space of the threshold. A History of Thresholds argues for the need to reinvent the threshold in order to establish a new contract between architecture and humanism.
