Log 15 (Winter 2009)

Log 15 is a slice through the present, featuring the current work and thinking of some of today's leading architectural historians and theorists ... Assembled to honor Phyllis Lambert on her 80th birthday, these essays range from an architectural and archaeological reading of Chris Marker's post-apocalyptic film La Jetée to Dravidian architecture in India; from Gordon Matta-Clark's erasure of architecture to the persistence of asphalt; from the influence of Andy Warhol on ambient architecture past and present to the house in the museum and the museum in the house.
