Actions of Architecture: Architects and Creative Users by Jonathan Hill
Routledge; 1 edition | July 24, 2003 | English | ISBN: 0415290430 | 232 pages | PDF | 8 MB

Drawing on the work of a wide range of architects, artists and writers, this book considers the relations between the architect and the user, which it compares to the relations between the artist and viewer and the author and reader. The book’s thesis is informed by the text ‘The Death of the Author’, in which Roland Barthes argues for a writer aware of the creativity of the reader.
