We have coordinated the editing in English of “Laughing at Architecture. Architectural Histories of Humour, Satire and Wit” by Michela Rosso published by Bloomsbury Visual Arts. It provides a survey of visual and textual humour as applied to architecture, its artefacts and its leading professionals. 13 essays range form 1750 to the present, from Europe to USA to contemporary China and explore an array of visual and literary sources to examine the critical reception of projects, buildings and cities through the menas of caricature and parody.
