Eccentric Spaces

Robert Harbison

book

1977

An expansive meditation upon the imagination and its application in built spaces from, gardens and castles to the imagined cities and spaces of fiction. This is a work of great breadth and vivid insight which succeeds completely in invigorating the eye and the mind. 

Structure

Taking the form of a journey through our most extravagant constructions be they the ornate allegorical gardens of Renaissance Italy, fantastic speculative maps of antiquity, grand houses of fiction or idealized landscapes of historical record, the author intends to lead us toward a fresh view of the worlds we inhabit.
