"The author uses urban plans, architectural drawings, and photographs to reveal the layers of meaning present in each building, including the deepest layer -- its secret life. At this level the buildings have in common the fact that their meaning is derived from realities of an imperfect present and no longer from the anticipation of a utopian future." (Jacket blurb).
