Marc J. Neveu Published in Reading Architecture

Professor Marc J. Neveu, associate dean of the School of Architecture, was recently published in the book Reading Architecture. His chapter, entitled Melvilla: An(other) Underline Reading, explores the work of Douglas Darden through the lens of Melvilla, a library, archive and reading room in New York.

Reading Architecture builds on the existing interdisciplinary bibliography on architecture and literature, but prioritizes literature’s capacity to talk about the lived experience of place and the premise that literary language can often express the inexpressible. It sheds light on the importance of a literary instead of a pictorial imagination for architects and it looks into four contemporary architectural subjects through a wide variety of literary works.
