Kenneth Frampton and Silvia Kolbowski, Rizzoli 1982) is an exhibition catalogue no 5 produced by the famed Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies (1967–1984). The book opens with two essays: Kenneth Frampton’s Krier in Context, and Deborah Berke’s Rob Krier and the Utopian Tradition in Housing. The rest of the book has been devoted to Rob Krier’s typological analyses and project presentations.
The book has English text and it has been lavishly illustrated with black-and-white photographs and Rob Krier’s fantastic drawings.
