HORROR IN ARCHITECTURE

Written by Comaroff, Joshua
This book looks at the idea of horror and its analogues in architecture. In these, normal compositions become strange: extra limbs appear, holes open where they should not, individual objects are doubled or split or perversely occupied. Horrifying buildings re-imagine the possibilities of architectural language, shifting from natural norms to other, more rarified and exciting options.
