Autorenporträt
Geoffrey H. Baker has taught architectural design, history, and theory for over 30 years and developed expertise in the analytical dissection of buildings and cities. He has lectured extensively in the UK, throughout the USA, Australia and the Far East. His publications include monographs on Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, James Stirling and Antoine Predock, and articles specializing in the analysis of works by leading contemporary architects.
