“Emma Cheatle’s inspiring book is a must read for any historian of twentieth-century modernism. Cheatle’s concept of ‘partarchitecture’ itself sets out a mode of working that can go beyond the limits of the textual record, using the building’s materiality, and creative sited practices to offer new interpretations and speculative insights for architectural history and design thinking.
