substance symptomatic of a general trend in contemporary architecture? Arup
Associates provides the alternative: unified design. This straightforward,
critical reflection on contemporary architecture -- a manifesto of sorts,
polemical in parts, philosophical; and determined to set an honest agenda -- is

the practice place the vision of people-focused design in the context of other
critical social thought.
