Reviews

"One of the great writers on Horror and Pulp trains his attention onto the history of modern architecture, reading it through one motif--the passageway and corridor, revealing the simple conduit as something alternately punitive and utopian, idealistic and functional. The results serve as a pathway through the mundane reality and extraordinary potential of the cities we live in. Your local mall will never feel the same again."--Owen Hatherley, author of "Militant Modernism," "The Chaplin Machine: Slapstick, Fordism and the Communist Avant-Garde," and "The Ministry of Nostalgia"
"What a work of imaginative re-engineering! Luckhurst--always learned, but always witty too--journeys through architecture, philosophy, social thought, and radical history to show that corridors, as much as they have been associated with dread and numbing conformity, have also been sites of utopian dreaming, celebrated as engines of collectivity and social exchange, heralded as pathways to marvelous modernity."--Sukhdev Sandhu, author of "Night Haunts: A Journey through the London Night"
