Description

Toward an Architecture of Enjoyment, the first publication of Henri Lefebvre's only book devoted to architecture, redefines architecture as a mode of imagination rather than a specialized process or a collection of monuments. Lefebvre calls for an architecture of jouissance-of pleasure or enjoyment-centered on the body and its rhythms and based on the possibilities of the senses.

Author Biography

Henri Lefebvre (1901-1991) was a Marxist philosopher and sociologist. His many books include The Right to the City, The Production of Space, Everyday Life in the Modern World, and The Urban Revolution (Minnesota, 2003). Lukasz Stanek is lecturer at the Manchester Architecture Centre, University of Manchester, and the author of Henri Lefebvre on Space: Architecture, Urban Research, and the Production of Theory (Minnesota, 2011). Robert Bononno, a teacher and translator, lives in New York City. His recent translations include Speech Begins after Death by Michel Foucault (Minnesota, 2013) and Cosmopolitics I and II by Isabelle Stengers (Minnesota, 2010-11).
