Dichotomy Vol. 3 No. 2
The purpose of this issue is not to denounce what has become known as “modern architecture” but more importantly, to give some insight as to what the future may hold. Since this issue of Dichotomy is concerned with Visions of the Eighties, we have taken the opportunity to look back over the history of visionary architecture through the works of such men as Piranesi, Viel, Ledoux, and Boullee.
