Sex and Buildings: Modern Architecture and the Sexual Revolution

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Buildings provide the frameworks for our sexual lives and act as reminders of our sexual memories and fantasies. This relationship between sex and buildings mattered more than ever in the United States and Europe during the turbulent twentieth century, when a culture of unprecedented sexual frankness and tolerance emerged and came to dominate many aspects of public life. Part architectural history, part cultural history, and part travelogue, Sex and Buildings explores how progressive sexual attitudes manifest themselves in architecture, asking what progressive sexuality might look like architecturally and the successes and failures of buildings to reflect it.
