One of the questions addressed repeatedly by the French philosopher Michel
Foucault (1926-84) was, What is knowledge? Qu’est-ce que le savoir?
Is this question relevant for architects and if so, how? In order to comment
on this and other Foucauldian enquiries of architectural significance this book
asks what the position of Foucault’s work is in relation to architecture, its
knowledge, its design practice, its history and theory, and its criticism.
