Blurb/Shorttext:
This Book investigates the relation between architecture and the linguistic phenomenon (Metaphor). Concept beyond architectural ideas is an important issue for audience of architects, students, and critics. 'Architecture and Metaphor' considers a philosophical attempt trying to uncover secrets and hidden intentions of the 20th century architecture. From a literary perspective, the book interprets multiple meanings of the architectural forms, which understood as the 'Metaphor' in architecture. From Postmodern Age until now, architecture has passed three phases of complexity I, II, and III. Architectural metaphors have witnessed rising in degree of complexity to be read and figured out. This book, therefore, collects fifteen examples of the most remarkable projects analyzing ideas of their architects and clarifying what they meant by their metaphoric representations. This book is expected to be used as a reader-cum-textbook for many architectural theory classes for the next generation of architects.
