Reviews

"The first and only attempt I know to explore both the idea of Jewish architecture and its contemporary practice, informed by questions of Holocaust memory, Jewish identity, and the various schools and movements of post-World War II architecture. . . . It makes a huge contribution to the fields of Jewish cultural studies and architectural history."--James E. Young, author of At Memory's Edge: After-images of the Holocaust in Contemporary Art and Architecture--James E. Young "James E. Young "

"This thoughtful, scholarly study culminates years of research into and interviews with many of the most important Jewish architects of the past century . . . [Rosenfeld] gracefully addresses, both personally and professionally, the engrossing spread of 1920s German and Jewish critical theory, balancing assimilation and alienation."--P./I>--P. Kaufman "Choice "
