The Dissonance Between Overwhelming American Landscape and Bland Architecture

The Editors

In Daniel Kaven’s new book, Architecture of Normal, he explores the dissonance between the overwhelming American landscape and the underwhelming architecture of its strip malls, fast food chains, motels and tract housing. Part travelogue, art book and architectural survey, the book charts the patterns created by reigning modes of transportation and examines how we came to accept the bland, branded boxes lining America’s streets and freeways.
