The Baroque

 

According to critic and curator Owen Hopkins, it is to The Baroque that architects and designers must today turn. Here, in this eloquent essay, he says it is a style that celebrates the individual as creator of architecture that is deliberately complex; that does not treat illusion as deceit; that revels in the spectacle rather than the mundane or ordinary. The Baroque is a deep-seated and irrepressible urge for architecture that is defiant.
