Sep '06 - May '08
In colloquium today, Sanford got the class talking about things like master/slave relationships, power/knoledge, urbanism, globalisation, computations, and I'm sure the meaning of life (pretty common stomping grounds for Mr. Kwinter). Along the way, he drops the names of books we all should think about reading. I'm sure the same has happened to lots of you - polite suggestions from your proffessors of books you should be reading / should-have-read / should-be-able-to discuss-right-now-in-class.
So I thought I'd make a list of books I have been suggested to read "in my spare time" so far this year. I hope to get around to them once I take care of this whole studio/architecture/books of required reading I need to do for school anyway - thing.
Cybernetics - Norbert Weiner
Discipline and Punishment - Foucault
Anything by Hegel/Marx
Fast Food Nation
The City of Tommorrow and Its Planning - Corbu
The End of Oil - Paul Roberts
The Long Emergency - James H. Kunstler
Good City Form - Kevin Lynch
The Athens Charter - CIAM
The Will to Power - Nietzsche
There are others but I can't read my handwriting.
