The monographic anthology Architecture and Anthroposophy bridges the gap between the traditional architectural history and the anthroposophical narratives. Our mission is for the first time to integrate anthroposophical ideas on architecture with mainstream arthistorical ideas; and to illuminate the influence of the organic-spiritual impulse on architecture of the twentieth century. It is a highly original integrative work and a unique experience of international collaboration. All chapters are contributed by distinguished European and American scholars and architects, and translated from English, French and German into Russian by renowned professionals. Book design: 268 pages, 8"x 12" hard cover format, dust jacket, 348 illustrations (189 in color). Editor Anna Sokolina.

world are grateful for your important contribution to scholarship...
would like to recommend strongly the acquisition of the following book:
*Arkhitektura i Antroposofiia* [Architecture
and Anthroposophy], ed. Anna Sokolina. It is the leading work on the subject.
Though in Russian, it has English summations and is a book no self-respecting
architecture library can be without...

will instantly recognize that circumstance as a factor
enhancing its desirability...
