"In this compilation of 19 essays, written during the 1960s and 1970s George Nelson brings his practical experience as industrial designer and architect and his critical skills as editor, writer, teacher, and lecturer to bear on the major issues confronting designers. Whether his subject is Tents, The Future of the Object, Topless Trinities, Scenarios for the Post-Modern City, The End of Architecture, or Design and Human Needs, George Nelson makes a habit of provoking controversy with his analysis." - publisher.
