Abstract

If a building could speak, what would it say? What would it sound like? Would it be worth listening to? This book treats buildings as deeply human creations - built by people for people; they come to embody the dreams, imaginings and stories that take place within them. David Littlefield and saskia Lewis argue that buildings have voices and that it is worth listening to what they have to say.
