It is an interesting hybrid of literature and architecture in which architect Diane Lewiss views on architecture today are presented with what she calls a literary dimension, redefining the role of history in a textual reading of form and the city. In Mind to Matter, Lewis constructs an associative dialogue between architecture and text, in a generative analysis of contemporary architecture. Tracing the changing role of the architect in the authorship of form and the city as the art work of the 21st century, the book is composed of twelve chapters that deal with the roots of surrealism and its effect on architecture, the Faust myth and its manifestation in urban form, and the impact of 20th century representation on the contemporary architectural debate.

Mind to Matter will be of interest to architects and students of architecture, as well as those interested in interdisciplinary studies.
