a oeFirst we shape things, then they shape usa, was Churchilla (TM)s view. What kind of architecture can be said to shape? Who does it shape? And by what means does it shape? The authora (TM)s answers to these questions are a surprise. Through war and proximity to stress. After a tour da (TM)horizon through Roman temples, Washingtona (TM)s corridors of power and Meccaa (TM)s anti-panic architecture it becomes clear that architecture is anything but in the background. Instead it is situated in the hot spot of transmission dynamics and is capable of altering cultures, empires and even religions.
