- Nigel Coates / Narrative Architecture - http://pro-qm.de/node/2489
Architectural Design Primers Series. To architects the enduring attraction of narrative is that it offers a way of engaging with the way a city feels and works. Rather than reducing architecture to mere style or an overt emphasis on technology, it foregrounds the experiential dimension of architecture. In practice, it is just as easy to be minimalist as maximalist in its execution. Nigel Coates' "Narrative Architecture" is the first publication to look the subject in the eye. It deals with its background, analysis and practice as well as its future development.
