Race and Modern Architecture

A Critical History from the Enlightenment to the Present

This book will enlighten many. By exposing how modern architectural discourse and thought have been influenced quite heavily by racism, this critical and important scholarship sheds new light on the built environment. Race and Modern Architecture ultimately reveals how architecture and design have been silent partners in oppression in the United States and around the globe.
Lee Bey, author of Southern Exposure: The Overlooked Architecture of Chicago's South Side
