This book illuminates sociology's contribution to the understanding of architecture. It examines architecture as a form of cultural production and the ways in which architectural production is implicated in wider social relations. It also describes the political mobilization of architects and architectural projects. The book analyses how architecture contributes to the legitimation of state power and how architects deal with the constraints and opportunities associated with commissions within the architectural field.
