One of the questions addressed repeatedly by the French philosopher Michel

Foucault (1926-84) was, What is knowledge? Qu’est-ce que le savoir?

Is this question relevant for architects and if so, how? In order to comment

on this and other Foucauldian enquiries of architectural significance this book

asks what the position of Foucault’s work is in relation to architecture, its

knowledge, its design practice, its history and theory, and its criticism.
