Reyner Banham : historian of the immediate future by Nigel Whiteley( )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 1,616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reyner Banham (1922-1988) was one of the most influential writers on architecture, design, and popular culture from the mid-1950s to the late 1980s. His first book, Theory and Design in the First Machine Age (still in print with the MIT Press after forty years), was central to the overhaul of Modernism, and it gave Futurism and Expressionism credibility amid the dynamism and change of the 1960s." "This biography is a comprehensive critical examination of Banham's theories and ideas, not only on architecture but also on the wide variety of subjects that interested him. It covers the full range of his oeuvre and discusses the values, enthusiasms, and influences that formed his thinking."--Jacket
Design for society by Nigel Whiteley( )

31 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,093 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Design was the boom industry of the last decade, and it has helped to create the superficially more 'caring' image that currently exists in our society. Yet the newsworthiness of design conceals a disturbing ignorance of the profession's values and ambitions - even among designers themselves. Design generates much heat but little light: we live in a world that has much design consciousness but appallingly little design awareness. Nigel Whiteley analyses design's role within the consumer society, and discusses what our obsession with it tells us about the present state of our own culture." "Design for Society is not an anti-design book; rather, it is an anti-consumerist-design book, in that it exposes what most people would agree are the socially and ecologically unsound values on which the system of consumerist design is constructed. The author reviews the implications for design of the Green movement, the growing impact of feminism, and the ideas of 'socially responsible' designers. In so doing, he prepares the ground for a more self-aware and just development of design."--Jacket
Art and pluralism : Lawrence Alloway's cultural criticism by Nigel Whiteley( )

This book examines the writings of Lawrence Alloway (1926-1990), one of the most influential and widely-respected art writers of the post-War years. Art and Pluralism provides a close and critical reading of Alloway's writings, and sets his work in the cultural and political context of the London and New York art worlds of the 1950s to the early 1980s. A invaluable work for all twentieth-century artists and art historians
