Architecture - Civilization - Gender

Residential Building, the Civilizing Process of Dwelling Practices and Changes in the Family

By Katharina Weresch

In line with German sociologist Norbert Elias' civilizing process, this book describes how architecture has been perceived with regard to dwelling practices over an extended period of societal development. The genealogy of the civilizing process in dwelling practices begins with the Palace of Versailles and runs chronologically to present day residential construction in Germany. In addition, the book provides a bibliography of 'architecture and gender.' (Series: Architektur - Vol. 13) [Subject: Architecture, Sociology, Gender Studies]
