Nicholas de Klerk enjoys a book that offers another way into architecture
Paul Shepheard’s book Slogans and Battlecries, published by Patrick Lynch’s Canalside Press, is structured in three sections. The first, Slogans, is a series of fifty 300-word texts which began life in Building Design, the titles of which range from some of the more well-known architectural aphorisms – Form Follows Function to Complexity and Contradiction – to other more enigmatic propositions such as “I Reserve the Right to Distort Time!”.
The second, Regulations, explores the Approved Documents, and the third, Materials, sets out a series of texts which explore subjects as wide-ranging and counterintuitive – at least on the face of it – as grass, leather and fire.
